If you're going for a big modern rock sound, I wouldn't suggest recording electrics in stereo, rather do multiple mono takes and pan them wide. I would however suggest using multiple mics per take. A great method if you have 57s is one of them on the grill pointed straight at the cone, and the other right on the grill next to the first one, pointed diagonally towards the cone, forming kind of an arrow if that makes sense. Blend to taste but usually the angled one higher in the mix with the straight one in there just enough to get some of the ultra high bite sounds great.
