Hello Larry,
I fall very firmly in the condenser mic camp. I've never heard a pickup in an acoustic guitar that compares to the natural sound of the guitar either live or recorded. Also, condenser mikes capture the natural sound better than dynamic mikes in my experience.
If memory serves you recently acquired a two channel Presonus interface so with a couple of decent condenser mikes and some mic placement experimentation you'll be off to the races.
I hope you're enjoying the process thus far.
