Huh!

I guess the fret markers have totally gone out of fashion on classical guitars.
My first classical guitar was the bottom of the line Yamaha, and it has inlaid dots like a steel string. My first relatively decent classical guitar, an Alvarez, introduced me to the world of the totally unmarked fretboard.

I tried to find images of classical guitars with dots, even looking at all of Yamaha's entry level lineup, and the fretboard dots on nylon string guitars seem to have gone the way of the dodo.
