I really hate it when I hear those overly reverby acoustic tracks. Unless it is an artistic statement it screams "Kmart $5.99 bin" to me. I usually add reverb last. I'll add in the room mic/s to see what I'm getting. Try a very small amount of chorus with a very slow rate just for a small amount of sparkle. Sometimes your done with this. A little delay tucked behind the track can be good as well as a stereo delay at about 30ms on one side and 15 ms on the other can be a good place to start. After I try these things and keep what works I'll add the room mic/s back in and then add some reverb. It makes you use much less and keeps it hidden. Sometimes I just put verb on the room mic.

I hope something was useful.
