Recording and mixing electric guitars

Hello Tchad,
I have a few questions on recording and mixing electric guitars:
Are you starting out with a single mic on a guitar amp? or rather 2 mics (like a 57 and a condenser?)
How much do you work on isolation: putting amps in blankets, iso boxes, etc.?
Do you compress and eq guitars on the way in?
Then, for mixing, where do you start: some HPF and LPF? additive compression?
Thank you for taking the time. Doug.

Usually a 57>LA3A(insert). Sometimes a Neuman KM84 or both bussed together to one track. I like to mic the outside rim of the cone, quite close on small amps. Big, fat sound. Move further away if it's too much, .25" at a time.
Bathrooms, and closets, booths if available.
I start with what I recorded. It should the right sound without further treatment unless the song changed with lots of OD's.
