Electro-Voice RE20 for acoustic guitar?

I have a client coming in later this week; a singer-songwriter who plays acoustic ( I don't know what model, he has several) and in our phone conversation, he was asking me about my mic selection; I gave him a general overview of what I had, and when I mentioned - in passing - that I have several dynamics, including an Electro-Voice RE20, he got excited with the idea of me Micing his a
