Anyone tried the Audix VX5 on acoustic guitar??

Has anyone tried the Audix VX5 on acoustic guitar? An audix rep told me today that because my recording room doesn't sound the greatest, the VX5 will work very well on acoustic guitar tracks. It's super cardioid and ignores a lot of the bass build up in my small home studio. I'd appreciate any input from anyone who's used the VX5 for acoustic guitar recording. Thanks!!

Hi CAGuy,
Audix told you right. I don't know how the VX5 sounds because i never tried it but i've tested my Audix VX10 in the same situation and it was clean enough to record this properly. I think the behaviour of the VX5 is quite similar even if it's a super cardio instead of a cardio. It shoudn't be worst of course. The only problem you could have is the limitation of distance from the source. VX5 being a vocal mic. You 'll surely obtain the best sound around 20 to 30 cm from the guitar and at this distance, the mic will grab unwanted sounds on a poor quality guitar. With a nice one, i'm pretty sure the vx5 will do a very clean job.
