A cheap mic may or may not sound good for your guitar and bad for others, you
have to let your ear decide it.

Two often recommended ways to record acoustic guitars is:
1: place the mic around the 12th fret (or where the neck meets the body). Your
left hand will almost certainly make noise with this method :-) or...
2: Place the mic near the bridge (somwhere between the hole and bridge) and do
some testing from there.

It's one more way: Try to record from your right shoulder (if you mic can
catch the sound) down to the guitar, that may do the trick.

A top quality mic might give good results on your guitar, but you can not be
100% sure. I don't know your mic, but it's also possible that it records your
fingers better than sounds from other frequencies.

The bottom line is that you have to test whats best for you and how it will
sound i a mix. The suggestions above is not uncommon and a quite good start,
but a google will give you loads of info on this subject. Many people do some
heavy EQing too, so it's many possibilities.

Good luck, hope it helps.
