Best Stereo Micing techniques for Guitar?

Hi, I have to record a guitar (acoustic in some songs and spanish in others) and i would like to try stereo Micing techniques, which one would you recommend me? (Distance, angle, etc)

I have a couple of Good condenser mic and a couple of 57's, not a good room at all, new strings for both guitar, and a good player.

Thx in advance for your answers


compression mode when stereo Micing acoustic git?


Wondering if you guys have any preferences on this.
compression in dual mode or stereo [linked] mode.

when i recorded with xy pair, compressing slightly to tape [daw] in dual mode seemed ok dynamicaly.
I rerecorded using spaced pair as it sounded better frequency wise, but had strange image shifts.
Resorted to dual[linked] compression mode.
