Mic techniques for guitar

Jimmy Page:

“You shouldn’t really have to use EQ in the studio if the instruments sound good. It should all be done with microphones and microphone placement. The instruments that bleed into each other are what create the ambience.”

Great advice.

    I want to record my acoustic guitar, just for kicks, but I don’t want to spend serious cash to do it. Can anybody recommend a decent cheap mic that’d do the job?

    Behringer C1U is tempting, because it has USB, so I could also put off buying an audio box with mic-pre amp for a while longer, or pair it with a Pod Studio GX for my electric…

    Too much choice, too much money to be spent :(
