Been Caught Stealing, Guitars

Hi Dave,

I read online that the guitar on "Been Caught Stealing", was Dave Navarro playing an unplugged electric guitar in the vocal booth. To that I say: You could've fooled me, I thought it was simply a DI'd guitar.

My question is what mic did you use on it, and how much compression and EQ, if any did you apply to it during the mixing stage and were any other effects used?

The reason I used unplugged electric guitars was to establish a syncopated groove and tempo. I tried an acoustic guitar but even that was "too big" a sound . All this was done for Steve Perkins
to have something more than a click track to record to. I had Dave do three of these tracks of guitars then I bounced them together. I used a 451 mic ( my favorite for acoustic guitars because
it is the most "flat " mic I have. I compressed all three together thru a 1176 ( I like the 1176 because of its attack time-I set the attack very slow so as to be percussive) These guitars were not
ment to in the final mix however they did end up being used for more swing.
