i always suggest(i've said it here a million times,i'll say it again)BEFORE BUYING FANCY ASS MICS one should own a 57 and a 58.

like old bluesdude said,a 57 pointed at the lower f hole.58 for vocals.better yet is a 57 at the cone,a 57 at the soundholes and a 58 for voice.

it is always good to have a 57 or 58 around,either can be used to mic instruments,voice ,amps etc.

I have one and have used with a bluegrass band (one mike setup, though like most bands, we added wing mics to pick up some of the side instruments).

For solo work, it's great. Picks up both vocals and dobro, and I stand when I play, though I play lap-style. It'd work even better if you play seated, I bet.
It does require phantom power. My rig doesn't have phantom, so I purchased a small phantom power unit for $20 or so.

It sounds fantastic, and they're going for between seventy and a hundred pounds. It works for resonators, acoustic guitars, banjos, ukuleles, you name it. It also fits in a regular size mic holder, unlike some of the other condensers I've seen.
No good for vocals though, so you'll still be in a two mic situation.

Pretty pricey....

Radio Shack has a clip on mic that is under powered, about $20. but sounds pretty gnarrly on my reso. run into a SS fender amp. Some feedback.

Sometimes I just tape a Shure58 to the bridge of my doghouse and get a nice warm sound. Should work for mic a guitar.

Ideally, I'd like to buy a condensor mic that allows me to mic the guitar and get a good sound. It would be nice if I could use one mic for guitar and vocals, bluegrass style. Honestly, I'd like to find a mic that could do both. I'd like to be able to use just the one mic if I want, or use a separate vocal mic and just mic the guitar. Is there something out there that could do this fairly well?

So I need recommendations for a condensor mic for performing.
