Dude, the last guitar work I recorded was on an Ibanez EDB600 which I ran into a Zoom multi-effects (pedal board) with a rack-mounted Line 6 POD patched through the Zoom's external effects loop. The flange and the delay on the Zoom were fantastic, but the POD had a superior distortion.
Not a very high-end guitar, but I got a beautiful, warm, aggressive spectrum out of that set-up.
I was in an old record store earlier today, breathing in that intoxicating vinyl-and-cardboard smell.
You my new guuurl...word!!
