Was thinking of pairing with the Focusrite Scarlett 2I2 possibly
The Scarlett 2i2 will power a condenser mic. You'll have two inputs, so you can mic vocals and acoustic at the same time with two mics (or vocals and some other instrument "live" at the same time, or record in stereo, or add the acoustic guitar pickup to the mic'ed acoustic judiciously)--but if you place your one mic right and balance your playing appropriately, you can record both with one mic in one pass.
