Hey guys I'm looking to get a cheap but decent quality mic for recording acoustic guitar and vocals.

Any suggestions?
my band uses the Shure SM57 to record things like that
MM Stingray
MIA P Bass
MIM Jazz Bass
GK 700RB-II Head
GK 410SBX Cab
Sansamp 3 Ch. DI
Crybaby Bass Wah
Bass Big Muff
DD3 Delay

MIA Strat
Nashville Tele
Martin 00015M
Hot Rod Deluxe
Big Muff
Hendrix Crybaby Wah
I've heard that Shure is the way to go. I really would like to spend between $100-200 bucks.

the sm57 is an dynamic instrument microphone, amazing value for recording instruments. It is used it recording studios everywhere, and its only around $100. The sm58 is a vocal microphone and will result in significantly better quality vocals, and im not sure how well it records instruments. Its around the same price. I have a cheaper mic (peavey, around $50) which works excellent for recording my guitar and bass. but its not good for recording vocals, they are too quiet, muddy, unclear, etc.

can i get by with it, or should i get the sm58?

should be ok. ask the staff at a music store, they should be able to help you. don't let them talk you into paying an outrageous price though.
