...Jon @ Naiant makes outstanding omni condensor mics that are under $50 (Naiant Studio Store - Microphones
If you order two, he'll match them free of charge. He also has audio samples of acoustics: Naiant Studio
The technique of at 12 fret and bridge. Are you using this in a stereo configuration. If so, are you not getting more bass/boominess on the bridge side of the stereo field? How far from the guitar are the mics? I find it less noticeable when in X-Y configuration at the 12th fret. The one pointing more toward the hole is more booming but not as noticeably.
