I have used a pair of NT1As successfully. They are a little bright but good if your guitar is in a mix with other instruments. I also like the Superlux 251s A LOT. They don't have that harsh high end you get with most inexpensive mics.

Hey,

I think the NT1-A is nice for vocal recording.

But for acoustic guitar I can recommend the Rode NT3.

I am currently using the Audio Technica AT2020. (And I have tested lots of microphones.)  :D
