Mic choices

Mic choices

Interested in hearing what mic choices other users are making when recording acoustic guitar. For a long while I had been combining a variety of different condenser microphones for interesting stereo tracking but recently began tracking each acoustic guitar performance in mono. The tracks feel more solid for some reason easier to mix when blending with other guitar tracks. I was considering upgrading to an Earthworks mic. The SR 20 appears to have the right spec at a decent price. Anyone tracking with Earthworks?

Well, I did buy some stuff to do so, but miss room to keep all that paraphernalia at hand... So i make my takes with my webcam which also takes street noise as well as my PC fan ! I don't have room to make Any kind of studio... Some guys have track mixers and adjust the volume of instruments and voices they taped séparantely. I'm now considering to connect my guitars and put my mp3 on PowerPoint montages...

I've been experimenting with mic variations all weekend.
I'm finding that the stereo setup works great for my one-featured-guitar recordings but when recording multiple guitars, I'm getting much better results recording each part in mono. When it comes time for mixing, the guitars are more easily positioned in the sound space and the separation is a lot clearer.
Tips for recording multiple parts, anyone?
