While this is true and I would rather use a darker mic for the acoustic guitar, I still won't ever rule out the pick choice. It's all a balancing act, especially with the acoustic guitar.

Not only do I think about the best mic, or the best pick for the sound, but also my strumming location(either closer or further from the bridge) and vary that from chord to chord in a progression. An acoustic guitar is all about controlling everything you can with two hands and your body.
