Has anyone got any do's and don'ts regarding mic choice and placement for a roundneck acoustic dobro played as a lap steel (bluesy rather than bluegrass style).

I want to get a little of the pick and steel noise in there, but not so much that it overpowers the notes, and also to pick up the distinctive resonator sound. At the moment, I'm using an MXL 990 about 60cm up, off-axis from the center of the resonator (think guitar combo lying on its back) but I'm not entirely happy with this.

Use two mics, one for pick noise and one for the sound of the instrument. Record two tracks simultaniously and adjust to taste after the fact.
