Default another great choice

Another great choice for your application, which is older, a bit of a sleeper, and can often be found on the cheaper end of things is the Beyerdynamic soundstar X-1. It has a cool retro look (similar to the Senheiser 421), very warm / smooth (for close-up micing), and capable of handling extreme SPL's.

Read recordinghacks.com, a mike review website.
They do extensive testing of mikes with guitars. There are hundreds of brands and thousands of models out there.
Many brands are more consistent between individual mikes than some imports from *****. Even the premium US designed line has a ****ese line for those that like playing roulette with their purchases, for a 50% discount.
Recordinghacks.com is somewhat less useful to me since I play piano, which is much more difficult to reproduce. SM57/58 are tinny on piano. No highs.

Thanks, much appreciate the input. I think the presence is what I don't like, glad it was mentioned, that narrowed it down for me. And hiring some mics, I didn't even think if that. great idea.
Speakers and mics is so subjective, very hard to describe sounds.
