Fix it in the mix

I've got a guitar part I'm unable to re-record any time soon.

Its an acoustic guitar recording that is somehow nasally, shrill, and muddy all at the same time. I've gotten it a little better with EQ cuts, soothe2, reverb, and compression but its a very careful balance and still doesn't sound nice, each EQ cut just brings out another quality that isn't all that nice.

Any fix it in the mix tips for a harsher nasally guitar recording?

Its a background type sound, a simple repetitive loop to up the vibe in sections. So it just needs to have a "nice" feel to it to add some lushness to the track. Is this impossible? Should I just find someone on the net to re-record it for me (my acoustic guitar is on the other side of the country right now.)
