Don't forget about gearslutz own Artur Fisher's Bumblebee Pro Audio either those mics look super cool, not grossly expensive but appear to be well designed and good sounding.

Sometimes I'm amazed at the depth and range of any category of audio products at any price point.

With ribbons and on a budget, and if you have the ability to solder a pickup in...
No reason not to build one, so simple even a caveman...uhhh ya know what I saying.

A condenser build gets complicated, but ribbons are super simple, motor , transformer, a few wires..that’s it.
You end up with a better motor and transformer dollar per dollar.
Somthing to consider.

That said I have used a fathead on guitar cabs, it makes usable tracks for sure.

That's the way the Bumblebee kit works from DIY Recording Equipment

You just do the soldering and assembly.

But "from scratch" now you're talking about a much more serious build requirement. I have thought about trying it one day. There are some good web resources on the topic, out there. The one the guy built into a bent pipe with panty hose as the grill. Love it. Internet gold.

Cool, will have to listen to later on something other than my phone.

No Hype's website seems to say that the LRM-V is the one to compare to a 4038; they have a few comparison links there too.
