Yeah I've used it in the past for adding to a clean guitar sound - works well on bass guitar too.

We were in the studio working on a song. We were getting ready to lay down the guitar tracks. The engineer was micing my guitarist's amp, and my guitarist was playing his parts with his amp turned down. He stopped playing, and I told him to keep playing and I moved my ear closer to his guitar. It sounded pretty cool. I looked at the engineer and he knew what I was thinking. He said "your thinking about throwing a mic on the guitar itself arn't you". I said "yes I am". My guitarist gave me a look like I had lost my mind. I just laughed and told him "it's tecnique... it's been done before". We left his amp in the big room and put him in an isolation booth with headphones and miced the strings. It sounded really good. We left the miced strings in the background and it just added another layer. It was a nice little picking part, and a perfect time to employ such a trick. Anybody else ever try this little trick? It might be worth checking it out some time.
