Shure SM57 for instrument recording.
Shure SM58 for vocal work.

So it depends what you do more of

don't cheap out on mics, that's a professional mic at a very low price. get it. you'll have it for your life, unlike a cheapr mic which you'll upgrade eventually.

get the sm58 (or 57)

If your after a slightly cheaper option, you should grag the Shure pg58, same external contruction, but lesser quality on the inside, they run about AU$105 compared to AU$175 for a sm57-58

I wouldn't dream of recording vocals on an SM58/57. Id only use them live tbh. Get a condenser for vocals. But seeing as you're short on cash, you can't have both, so which is more important to you? Vocals or Guitar? I mean its not like you can record guitar with condensers (I actually prefer it) but alot of people think close-micing it with an sm57 works well.

If you're recording vocals, definitely go for a condenser mic.

if you must cheap out on a mic then the behringer c-1 is fairly decent for £30ish
