Processing guitar tone post recording

Here's a small demo of a new song I am currently writing. Now, for the past while I've been having complications with processing guitar tracks so they blend with the mix. I record from a pod 2.3 (using cab emulation) into 2 stereo tracks on my mixer...

I like the sound I have I would just like it to sound more professional and bigger...any help appreciated

Slightly more treble, less gain, and maybe less reverb will help it to sound more "studio" than "live"... you might have to put some more effort into the performance to get a good take, but it should be worth it.

Sorry i cant write anything longer, in a bit of a hurry...

nice riff, nice tone...

I'm kinda feeling what rilla said though....a bit less gain, and a bit more on the high's would be my take on the matter. should clean it up quite nicely.

I also love to record guitars 2, 3 or even 4 times, all panned differently in the mix. that usually brings everything out lot more, and the guitars ring out pretty well!

Nice stuff!

P.G. uses some slight chorusing live, try blending in just a tad at a time as to not overpower your signal. Otherwise, thats one of the better direct tones I've heard.
