You might check out the AEA N22 someone mentioned above. I have a pair, and they sound very nice. They're designed for home studios with more challenged acoustics, which mostly means they allow you to mic *really* close. For me, they work best literally a few inches from the guitar. They have an extended frequency response, so they're not as dark as many ribbons, and still have that smooth ribbon sound. Nice mics.
