Comments about Audio-Technica AT2021 Small-diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

I bought this mic originally to blend some acoustic sounds from my archtop with the sound from my amp. I place it overhead when I record, and it does a great job for that. Easy and effective.

I recently recorded my classical (nylon string) guitar with this mic. I found I could get good clarity and plenty of bass about 2 feet from the guitar's body. Any closer and it's mud, any farther and the bass attenuates too much. The high end gets bright starting at about 4K (emphasizing string noise) and it falls off rapidly at about 15K (so not very "airy"). If you're willing to spend some time EQ-ing the high end, you can produce a quality solo guitar track.
