    If someone asked me for the best affordable guitar, I'd recommend either a strat or a les paul.

    Best mic, shure sm58.

    Instead of saying "only you can decide..."

    If that was so, there wouldn't be a point to these forums, don't you think?

    Hi there,

    If you need an affordable and relatively inexpencieve mic you could look at his one

    Audio Technica AT2020

    the more advanced model

    Audio Technica AT4040

    and the even more advanced for those who are on the budget

    Audio Technica AT4050

    Cheerz!

    You can usually pick up a used AT4040 or 4033 for arround the price of a new AT2020

    Okay, here's my advice (and you should take it because you will get many,many other opinions and they will be different, and wrong) is to get a pair if sdc's (Oktava Mk012) and a nice dynamic (SM7 or Senny 421), and a nice LDC- AT 4040 , (or as high as you can get in the numbers), Rode Nt2A ( or one of their tubers, which are a little bright but extremely usable)
    Studio Projects T3, and a nice ribbon, preferably a Beyer, until you can afford a really nice one.

    +1 on the Oktavas.
    One will do fine on guitar.
    At the moment I'm looking for an LDC to go on both vocals or as second mic ont he acc guitar.

    Wrong!

    First he should buy a really good preamp like a John Hardy, so he can test all of his new mics to see which one is REALLY the best.
