Home recording question: for those with limited funds and limited equipment, what's the best method of accomplishing a big, full, warm-sounding acoustic guitar sound?

For a year I've been recording glitchy synth stuff for fun, but I also want to be competent at recording organic sounds like vocals and acoustic guitar.
Right now I've got an old Gibson acoustic played into a condenser mic which goes into a Mackie and then into an Audiophile card. The results sound a long way from professional recordings, obviously. So without investing in a bunch of vintage compressers, EQs and whatnot, what's a good affordable piece of technology (or technique) which would take my guitar sound to a more professional-sounding level? Plug-ins, etc?
