Guitar Tones

Hi Daniel.
I am a huge fan of your work mate.
I especially love U2's "The Joshua Tree" and I have just downloaded your new album so keen to listen to that too.

My question is how you achieve such good guitar tones.
Obviously a good instrument and amp are essential.

But since this is Gearsluts I was wondering what mics and pre-amps you use to record Acoustic Guitars and Electric Guitar Amps?

Cheers from Australia.

Mastering all styles and genres using an hybrid approach.
Special rates for unattended online mastering.
Add 24 Ch SSL analog summing for an extra $50 per song.
Prefer 10 stereo stems.

I like the Sennheiser 409 on amps. For a different sound I like a ribbon mic. Acoustic guitar recordings are tough. If you can have a nice big mic further back from the instrument that's usually the best. Further back means no booming. Lately I've enjoyed a U47 or C37A with a 1066 preamp.
