Personally I think that especially if you're going to print/export the 
score, this is the best option for one reason: 99% of (classical) guitar 
scores I've ever seen use a standard treble clef and give for granted 
that the guitar is a 'transposing' instrument. Wikipedia seems to 
contradict this [1] and says the octave clef is used for guitar from the 
18th century. Go figure.
