Tracking Guitars: Acoustic and Distorted Pics inside

Tracking some acoustic guitars: I wanted get a wider sound so instead of going to my "go-to" X-Y configuration pointed at the 12th fret, I decided to space it out with one SM81 on the 1st fret and the other towards the bridge.

I also have an M-Audio Solaris pointed about 6" from the 12th fret...


Here is the chain:
1.)Breedlove C25/SRe-> SM81->FMR RNP-> SSL Alpha link DA-> RME 9652 HDSP -> DAW
2.)Breedlove C25/SRe-> SM81->FMR RNP-> SSL Alpha link DA-> RME 9652 HDSP -> DAW
3.)M-Audio Solaris (cardiod mode) ->Great River 500 format Mic Pre-> SSL Alpha link DA-> RME 9652 HDSP -> DAW

Next was some distorted guitars

It is always a good day when I get to break out my Triple Rectifier!!

My amp head in the "control room" and I have the cab (off the floor) about 20 ft away in the living room.
