The acoustic guitar has a delicate timbre which you can capture through careful mic selection and placement. First prepare the acoustic guitar for recording.
To reduce finger squeaks, try commercial string lubricant, a household cleaner/waxer, talcum powder on fingers, or smooth-wound strings. Ask the guitarist to play louder; this increases the “music-to-squeak” ratio!
