Default Best Mic for electric Guitar

Other than the SM 57 what is the best mic for recording distorted electric guitar? Actually let me rephrase that. What is the best for under $300?? I wish money were no object but hey I live in the real world. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

You could also try a Sennheiser MD 421. It costs about 300$

One other question would you choose differently if you had an unlimited budget?

SM57...havnt heard of the beta57. Used a beta 52 on a kik, but to tell ya the truth, never tried out the 57. I usually rent mics(cheap) for diff apps. Will ask bout beta 57.

You know I never thought about renting mics?? That may be the solution I am looking for here! Ok but still I am unsure of which mic to use. For now it looks like I may end up buying the sennhieser. But I dunno [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
