Just swooped up a pair of...

MXL V67N's to stereo mic my small body steel strung. This'll be my first recording attempt. I listened to recording samples and really liked the sound on an acoustic. I grabbed the pair for $189 shipped. What would be a good way to arrange them for a jazzy intimate sound? and what would be some recommendations for a good warm condenser mic to record vocals? maybe the V67i?

There's plenty of threads here (as well as great tutorial videos) on different mic techniques for ac guitar. I suggest going through those, you'll learn a lot more.
But a good start point is to set them up in a standard x-y, one pointed toward the 15th fret (or where the body and neck meet) and one pointed towards the bridge. Pan them, L/R accordingly.
I've never used MXL mics, but I suggest getting a rode nt1 for an LDC, which you could get modded down the road as well.
