Recording Country music, the old way

Hello.

Lately we´ve improved our studio, and are gonna record or first album, wich got a lot of country style in it (an a of bit rock and a ballad!)

The main question is getting the right guitar sound from the Telecaster and Twin reverb, are u guys using 1 or 2 mics? How do u place the mic? I can choose between the old sm57, MD421, some large diaphram mics and a rode k2
And there´s no neve, api and that stuff yet.... Just a Alto Esotar preamp, wich indeed are clean and nice!

AND YES: The room are as good treatet as possible, it aint big but its allright.

Also its about getting that "old" tone (ofc, not so easy in this digitally world) but maybe some of u guys got a tips.

I'm not a Nashville guy but over the last 15 years or so I've produced a fair amount of music there for ads and such. Sort of a standard guitar setup there seems to be Tele > Deluxe Reverb > 421. Twins are really loud and clean -- steel players use them in the studio, but guitarists not so much.

Agreed. 421 will give you that clean, middy tone without too much edge, often heard classic country sound.
