Day 8: Getting A Guitar Sound

Hello, I'm back!
I'm feeling refreshed and ready to work again!

And now comes the part that most of you have been waiting for: guitars...
Today Viktor and I spent the day experimenting with different microphone combinations and positions for guitars.
We found a great guitar sound and I'll start recording the guitars tomorrow!

For all you gear heads out there here's a list of the gear we're using:

Ernie Ball Music Man JP in White (newer model with the DiMarzio D sonic on bridge position)
Ernie Ball Music Man JP in Sapphire Black (older model with the old DiMarzio custom JP pickup)
Engl Powerball amp head
Engl 4x12 slanted cab with Celestion Vintage 30s
Sennheiser e906 dynamic microphone
Shure SM58 dynamic microphone
Audio-Technica AT4040 condenser microphone
TL Audio C-1 microphone tube preamp and compressor
dbx 386 microphone tube preamp

Here's a list of other mics we tried out in various positions:
Neumann U47 (we were very excited about trying this one out, but there's something wrong with this particular one and it needs to get fixed), RCA BK-5, Shure SM57, Shure Beta 52, Beyerdynamic MCE 91

Here's the today's video:
