help with acoustic guitar mic choice

Thanks in advance guys,

Will be hiring two mics for a guitar recording. Finger picked acoustic, and that will be the only track of the mix, instrumental, nothing else. Definately going to go stereo, and will be hiring two mics from the list below.

Any combination suggestions most appreciated. At this stage, Im leaning towards the C12 and KM84. Mics will be running through JLM audio solid state preamps, JLM input transformer in the front.

Having not used most of these, I need suggestions and experiences, especially when it comes to stereo combinations.
