Yes, the vocal outshouts the playing by a lot. Nothing unusual about this -- people these days have guitars with pickups and expect the imbalance to be correctible, so it's not something many of them even think about.

With either one mic or two, I would probably have found it hard to get both a good balance and good presence without my mic(s) being in the shot.

The good thing about using one mic in a situation like this is that when you use compression in either tracking or post (which I probably would), the gain reduction of the vocal and guitar are the same, and you don't have to contend with constantly-changing bleed.
