The microphone we are talkin gabout is the AKG Perception 220. It is sold in a (plastic) case, along with a shockmount. A shockmount dampens the vibrations from the floor which will otherwise reach the microphono via the stand.
The microphone has two switches: a bass-cut and a -20 dB pad. The -20 dB is useful if you are recording the specific sound of an amplifier (or another instrument like a saxophone for example). The signal that the microphone passes trough will otherwise be too high for a mixer. The bass-cut reduces the basses volume. Whether you like this or not, is something you should try yourself. Condenser microphones are mainly used in studio environments; of course you can add an equalizer in the recording software afterwards.
The AKG is a little bit on the heavy side. This is something you should take into account when buying a mic stand.
Keep in mind that the position of the microphone relatively to the guitar has a very large influence onto the recorded sound. Just place the microphone in a few different positions to determine the sound you like the most.
For home recording, this is a very good microphone. All of the frequencies sound nice. In combination with a Yamaha MW8cx for example, it is possible to make nice sounding recordings for a affordable price for hobbyists.
