About all you can do is compress for more overall presence for both (then go back and make you sure you are still getting the balance between vocal and guitar that you want ) And you can EQ overall to clear low end mudd with a high pass filter try say somewhere between 50 to 90 hz .... and possibly (depending on the recording itself, and what your ears tell you) a slight low mid frequency cut (maybe 2 to 4 db) with a medium Q centered around 500hz
It certainly is a process of trial and error.
1 Mic makes it a little easier/better!
I will make note of your second paragraph and try some of those EQ tweaks.
