akg vs neumann

Neumann TLM 102 vs. Neumann TLM 103 vs. AKG C 414

I have a small home studio and I am looking to purchase my first high end mic. It will be running directly into the preamps on my Apogee Duet interface. I will use it mainly for recording my Taylor GS5 and Vocals and will occasionally use it for piano as well. I have about 1000$ to spend and I am looking for the best mic. I have a lot of experience with the C 414, some experience with the TLM 103, and no experience with the TLM 102 but I hear that it is nice. I like the C 414 but I don't know the other mics well enough to say that one is better.

Neumann BCM104 vs. AKG C414

I'm trying to decide on a vocal mic for my home studio. I've used a borrowed AKG C414 for while on vocals and on acoustic instruments for the last couple of years and am about to purchase a mic of my own. I've read some on the Neumann BCM104 and I'm wondering how it compares to the AKG. I'll mostly be tracking male vocals/country music. Anyone have any input? thnx!
