and it was $1700...
So - the 2247 LE was TONS better for me. Now would a Tele 47 be even better...probably, but I just don't think it's a $8200 difference.
For what it's worth, here's a female on a Studio Projects C1 - and it sounds incredible...it's $200.
Tried Too Hard

hey John,
what is your go-to choice for micing the acoustic guitars? Those tracks sound great and the SP C1 really brings out the magic in her voice on Tried Too Hard.
