Microphone shuffle

Out with the old, in with the new. Luckily I hadn't opened the Shure PG57 yet, because a glance at its online user's guide showed it wasn't recommended for acoustic guitar. (That's saved for the 81.) So, it safely back at its place of purchase, I picked up an Audio-Technica AT2020 from eBay to replace it. So, sometime next week or so, hopefully I'll be able to put together my first home recording of any decent fidelity. Hopefully I won't need to pick up the microphone's shock mount because that would just about double the price. But at some point, I need to pick up some kind of mic stand...

Everything I read about the SM81 makes me very, very interested. But it's still a bit beyond my budget reach, at least for now.
