My studio provides all the necessary infrastructure for professionally recording great sounding guitar tracks. I'm also able to videotape the recording process with a selection of cameras and studio lighting.
Starting with an acoustically optimized room and a variety of great amps, cabs and guitars to a selection of the most common microphones and some nice preamps it enables me to provide a broad range of guitar tones for my own projects as well as contract work.
While I've been using all of the leading-edge recording techniques like load boxes and IRs, modellers or re-amping depending on the purpose, I'm still a fan of recording guitars the old fashioned way with the instrument plugged into a loud amp and a mic going into a nice preamp.
