    Mine is a Cordoba Mini M, and I still think it sounds best tuned G-G regardless of the choice of strings, and I have tried a lot trying to get acceptable results tuned E-E.

    I have a Cordoba Mini that I tuned E-E, and while it sounded OK, I ended up tuning it G-G, which I think is the sweet spot for that guitar.

    I might also add that when tuning the new D'Addario strings, they kept going out of tune rapidly. It didn't make sense so I decided to check the tuner screws, and sure enough some were loose. After...

    It depends on how much you willing to spend, and the kind of music you want to play. In my case it's primarily music from the Renaissance and Baroque period.

    They really don't have to look alike.

    My Romero Creations DHO 6 string is a departure from what you would expect a classical guitar to look like.

    I installed a pair of strap buttons on ever guitar and ukulele I own except for the plastic Flight uke, which has stick on anti-skid pads, and couldn't be happier.
