Thought it might be a joke to go with with the cool pic. Now thinking about it yeah a lot of times Tele in general can record with a giant lack of lows. The WRHB extend higher so they a brighter, snappier. The signature will have more of a brighter, fizzy top sound to it, also a beefy humbucker style low end. It’s personally one of my favorites.
The Andy Johns tip I learned from live guys and probably pre-dates him.. imagine 57.. For brighter sound you aim for the dust cap. For darker sound you aim at the edge of the woofer. Andy Johns liked 2x57 in 45 degree XY style, one at the dustcap, the other at the woofer edge. Then blend dark/bright to taste. There’s a YouTube vid he did.
You can use the same idea with any mic.
And with guitar.. it’s all about placement. Close mic anywhere on the speaker can sound like garbage, sounds like phase canceling, and usually there’s one hard to find spot where it’s exceptionally warm. It takes forever to find it, I might have to move a mic 10 times. That’s why Johns invented his 2 mic technique, he was sick of looking for it.
Just that Shure KSM27 about a foot away from the guitar...as pictured.
...through the amp it sounded balls though. Ran it through my usual guitar chain. Modded Marshall JCM2000 > Mesa Recto 4x12 (in my iso booth) > Double mic'd with a 57 and 906 > CAPI VP28's > CAPI BT50's > Focusrite Red3.
