What you are doing is fine. Balance the direct pickup and the mic to sound best.When it sounds good, it is good.

One thing to consider is whether you will add other instruments to the recording.

Some times what sounds good alone in a recording is different than what sounds good if mixed with other instruments or simging.

So, when I record a piece with several instruments, I wait until they are all recorded. Then I bring them up, one at a time, and balance them, listening for places where one instrument is covering the other. This is where you can balance sounds with volume envelopes, compressors. And equalizers to cut out frequencies that cover or hide the other instruments.
