It doesn't currently have one, they had one modeled in the original variax acoustic, but with the new HD models coming I don't think they'll be referencing the older models.
I would be very surprised to see one turn up, but i'm not optimistic.

It doesn't really make much sense for them not to include those models that were in the original Variax Acoustic, or even more improved versions of those. Since they modelled a nylon string guitar, why isn't that an available model on the JTVs? I remember liking the acoustics better on their Variax Acoustic, though the new acoustic models in the JTV have probably surpassed those in quality. There were a few other interesting instruments in the Variax Acoustic as well.

just like the pod models... they didn't include the xt/x3 stuff because they modeled everything new in the HD's
i suspect that they'll be modeling everything new for the variax HD models....
which is why i wouldn't expect them to revisit models that they'd done previous...
if they do a nylon model, i'm pretty confident when i say it'll be a new hd version and not the older acoustic variax version.
i'd be very surprised if we got a nylon model at all though... would love to be surprised! so don't get me wrong....
honestly though i was a little dissapointed in the nylon model in the acoustic 700....
i have a cheaper acoustic electric samick nylon string which got me what i needed though...

Thanks for the quick answer. I'm not sure if I'm the only weirdo who didn't buy one because it didn't have the Classical Nylon Model, but last November I was all set to buy the JTV and almost ordered presuming it would have the Nylon Model.

Dear Dean Dinosaur (nice name, by the way! Dinos playing guitars remind me of the Finnish metal band "Hevisaurus" ),
Firstly, you are not the only one wishing for the Classical Nylon Model and, of course, you are not the weirdo (and never been one). There are reasons that make us buy or not buy something and we all make our own decisions. I always dreamt of Variax Acoustic 700 guitar. And, of course, the fact that it had the Manuel Velazquez Classical Nylon strings guitar was one of the deciding factors. Ever finding and getting the original was out of my reach and funds. I also knew that the weather conditions over here would quickly spoil it and not being a great guitar player, I did not feel myself worthy of such instrument in it's original model. So Variax Acoustic 700 was like a dream that I couldn't reach. It also had Mandocello which is a very expensive instrument of the Mandolin family and there is also a rare exotic instrument called Shamisen or Sanshin. These two are rare and I can't imagine how much the other one would cost. But leaving the acoustics and exotics aside, I always wanted all these great electric guitar models. They say that you can't have all, but still wonder if there is a chance and possibility to add at least the Classical Nylon strings guitar model.
I am not exactly sure how the Workbench software works. I mean, can completely different tones and models be stored there in form of some files and uploaded to guitar lately (something guitar didn't have before) or does it still work only around what original firmware of guitar allow? What I mean to ask, basically is: is it possible to have Irish Bouzouki (I know, I know, we all want to play a fiery solo there! ) in the Workbench and load it into guitar at some point? Or the original "insides" of guitar should have something for it? Guess, I need to learn more of the Variax technology!

There seem to be an update that was announced last week in NAMM about and bunch of HD models. Maybe they will include a classcial guitar model in this upcoming update and maybe a few exotic instruments also.
