Hello GMC! I've come across an electro-classicar guitar that is LP-shaped but uses nylon strings and apparently a mic. I already have a classical guitar but mine has no cutaway and recording it requires me to be close to the phone to capture the mic. I'm not saying I'll get it or anything but does anybody use this kind of guitar here? If so, could you share your thoughts?

The one I found is Cort Sunset NY BK, mahogany top and neck with rosewood fingerboard. I know Cort doesn't make brilliant electric guitars in the lower price range but maybe the Sunset series is a bit more appealing.

These guitars are mostly bought cause of stage concerns rather than tone. Both acoustic or classic, they're good at preventing feedback on stage.

They aren't super bad for their tone but to me doesn't get much better than "usable" (no depth, dimension or sweetness when compared to a regular design, expect a very upfront sound). I didn't play high quality ones though, a better mic. on such guitars can make a noticeable difference.

Side note; I'm not a fan of cutaways either on regular designs. Personal opinion but to me they steal too much of the tone and lower areas usually aren't played much on the fret-board to make it worth the compromise.
