Re: Microphone for recording acoustic guitars???
mxl 603s for SDC's, mxl v67g for LDC's. both are pretty darn cheap and sound great. i have gotten great results from the v67g. i am not a fan of dynamic mics on AG. i personally like 3 mics on an acoustic, but have had great results with several different types of mics.
also, look into the cascade fathead ribbon mic. i use those everywhere in my studio with great results. on guitar amps, they are godly. on AG, killer, too.
btw, did a test with my apex 460 in omni due to the fact that it is the only mic that i own that is multipattern and it was awesome. had it going into a TNC ACMP-84 to a dbx 166 into sonar and it sounded insane!
can't compare it to my ribbon tracks as i wasn't looking to shootout, but it was a great sound with little proximity effect(boomy-ness).
i had the mic positioned at the 14th fret about a foot away.
