First time recording acoustic

Ok I'm about to embark on tracking acoustic guitar for real for the first time ever, I'm not completely new just making sure I watch out for mistakes / certain things.

I'm going to stereo mic with oktava mk012's not sure what type of stereo miccing yet.

So, What things do I have to watch out for when recording acoustic guitar (And any other important things to mention so I can go read up on them) so I can get a nice clean proper track. Obviously mic placement etc.

How do I check phase? what's it sound like?
Comb filtering watch out for that?( These are just examples I'm reeling off in response to my question)
How hot do I record? (right amount of gain etc? how much db)

Thanks for all inputs!

Edit: Basically like a cheat sheet Do / do not / watch out for list style of points would be SUPER helpful!
