Lives for gear
 
I would imagine a nice compromise would be King's spacing, but with the pan-ins recommended by Decca for the 3' 'two-mic' tree.

I did it once with string quartet, and while still unrealistically wide, it was quite impressive. I'd never do ~3' without panning in, on anything.

As with any 'out front' placement, getting a good tonal balance on the instrument is trickier than the tail placement.
