Consideration of the acoustic space you record in (and associated room treatment to whip it into shape...) is certainly of primary importance.
Once you start getting a handle on that I can second the pair of AKG Perception 170s for sdcs if you're looking for low budget mics. I think they sound really good given the price point. I have tests of all the mics I have using the same instrument and vocal phrase in a DAW so I can quickly compare / contrast the sound of them. The Perception 170 is quite close to my Rode NT1 for reproducing my acoustic guitar and voice. A little more focused obviously, but much closer to all my LDCs than my sdcs.
