Well, when miking up an acoustic guitar, I personally place a mike pointing directly at the fet boards, somewhere beyond the 12th fret.

Where are you placing the mike? For acoustics, I often have to move the mic around for the best response. Often closer to the bridge will give you a bit more top end, but sometimes you lose some of the fullness. In my previous post, I referred to a technique called Ortf, where you use two mics in a stereo pattern. I use this for guitar a lot, and it sounds great. Bassically, you have two mics crossing over each other so the capsules are 120 degrees off axis to each other, and about 6 inches apart. You can do this with a T bar on one mic stand. Hope this helps. Kurt
I definitely like the C3 for vocals. It just seems to record the acoustic guitar too dark. Maybe I need to use an effect or do something with eq along with using the C3?
Thanks to all for your suggestions!

I'm really surprised you wouldn't like the c3. If you are looking for a little more edge, you may want to try the audiotenica 4330 (I think that is the model number). Also, believe it or not, the behringer b2 pro has quite a nice top end, and it is cheap in usual behinger fashion.

Subject: [ddots-l] Good guitar mic.
I know there have been mic discussions here before and I can't remember what the suggestions were. What would people recommend as a great mic for mic'ing guitar? Is there one out there for less than $500? I've tried the Studio Projects C3 and, though I get a wonderful quality of sound, I'm looking for that little extra punch. I also have a Shure Ksm27. Is that a better choice? Is there one I don't have which would be even better?
Looking for ideas.
