Its all about context. When you ride the fader on an instrument, focus on the vocal, not the thing you're riding. Do final EQing out of solo. Its all about how the pieces work together, not about the pieces. No one (well, OK, no one outside this forum ) consciously reacts to the EQ on the accoustic guitar.

And yes, knowing when its done is really hard.
