Avoiding breath noises while tracking acoustic guitar?

Any suggestions on this? I am tracking acoustic guitar with an AT-4047 and an AT2020. Both are cardiod pattern mics and I have even placed them a little above the guitar facing down so as to turn them away from the player's head, hoping they would reject the breath sounds even more but I am still getting a lot of it in the recording.

Tracking acoustic guitar this morning

Hi everyone. I have a client/friend coming over today to record acoustic guitar and then some vocals. I want to get the best tracks possible obviously and I have made some recordings in the past with acoustic that arent too bad. Let me just tell you what I've got and maybe you can tell me my best options. I have a Tascam DM-4800 and a single UA LA-610 for pres.
