I'm going to buy a mic for guitar amp recording. My recorder can accept XLR (low imp) or standard 1/4" jack (high imp). Is one better than the other, apples/oranges etc...? Thanks.

Gary is correct, but with all due respect I would not use a SM58 for a guitar cab. It's meant for vocals and it has a "hump" at a certain frequency that makes it unpleasant on guitar. The SM57 is only about $85 and it's very, very nice on a guitar cab.
