Well usually i like to hard pan them across the stereo field depending to the place and kind of the rest instruments and espesiialy e.guitars...for example if i have an overdriven rythm guitar playing the same more or less role with the acoustic (lets say plucked chords) with a close and a distant mic i usually pan them oposite...meaning the distant more full and dark mic goes with the bright woodpecker and the close mic goes with the more full and flat 414...this creates a nice glueing effect for the guitars (acoustic and electric) an even but yet spready and open stereo image and a quite full guitar tone.
Sometimes when there is no similar electric in the tune i'll double track the acoustic and put the mics of the two on the oposite side to each other.
However i rarely blend the 2 signals in a mono track, allthough this setup is pretty phase friendly if someone wants to go this way
