I have one (due in part to your praise of it). It is usually my go-to mic for live use. Too much proximity effect for recording for my personal taste, but it can work very well.
Lately I've been using my Beyer M130 for live sound. Words cannot describe how nice it is, but I'm too worried about keeping it healthy. The M88 is more road-worthy. I'm going to switch back to it this weekend. I also have a little Shure clip-on condenser (Beta 98 HC) in the event the stage is too small for my mic stand.
