Best place to ball-park acoustic guitar micing is about somewhere around 4-6 inches away (further if you want to cut out more bass from proximity effect) pointed towards the 12th fret.
There's more finger detail further up the fret board, and more rumble and warmth closer to the resonator.
SDC's are more detailed, while a good LDC can be warmer, smoother and more surreal sounding.
You can also get a cool stereo effect by doing an XY pair of SDC's around the 12th fret and panning them hard left and hard right during the mix down.
