Actually in terms of tone, feel, and quality, it's almost always better to sort out sonic issues as close to the source as possible. Especially so with things like guitars which will be processed, reamped, distorted, etc - all of which will make noise worse and exaggerate any issues.

Notching out hum and all that kind of processing is a bit of a myth. Even when you can remove the noise, you're losing some tone with it.
