That first one isn’t bad at all IMO.
I’m don’t like the second one - is that the Ovation? I’ve never been a fan of those.
Mic placement. It’s everything with an acoustic.
I’ve found with my little Taylor GS Mini Mahogany I get a better sound getting the mic at around head height as I sit with the guitar (I slouch a bit, so it’s not that high) and getting it relatively close to my head, looking down at the shoulder of the guitar while still being able to see the front of the soundboard.
That gets more bottom end, a good portion of string attack/clarity, and avoids the worst of the midrange resonances that make it not the best guitar to record with.
In my usual starter position, 30+cm in front of the neck/body join, the guitar tends to be quite ringy, and have way too much at 400-800hz.
The point of the story is, if you haven’t already done so really play with mic positioning. I bet you could get that Dean sounding thicker if that’s what you want. To be honest I don’t think that recording would have me tearing my hair out if I was sent it with a mix. I’d start by getting rid of that prominent ringing overtone around 700hz and trying something like an LA2A plugin just doing a couple of DB gr, then take it from there.
