I would really appreciate suggestions on the following: I am trying to find a nice guitar sound. Specially when you play chords. I have a line 6 pod and a scarlet 2I4. I have 2 (cheap) guitars (One Gibson Les Paul 180 and a Bradley (Veneman Music own brand) ) The Bradley sounds a little bit better but far from something that you could really use to do a decent recording. I have tried all the options in the Line 6 Pod but when you record it comes out kind of flimsy and muddy, even using different EQs it does not improve much. I live in an apartment so using an external amplifier/mic is out of the question. I really would like to know if a better guitar with better pickups and therefore better sound will do the trick or if instead getting something like amplitube would be a better option. Unfortunately the amp simulators in mixcraft are more into the distortion and overdrive type of sound. I really would like to get a more clean and crispier sound,(I guess 60's sound, Beatles, Rolling Stones, etc.), and from there add different effects if I want to do something more modern. Any ideas or suggestions on this subject will be greatly appreciated.
Than you very much
