    I would never boost anywhere between 2-4k in guitar. In fact, I'm always cutting the fuck out of those areas.

    I couldn't see myself using this EQ setup for guitars on anything I ever recorded. lol
    I would try some aggressive boost around 2 and 4K though. Boosted 2K = euphoric sound. JK

    It depends on mic placement (or impulse in your case) and taste of course. If you do it the right way you might not need much more than LPF/HPF. But as a rule try to fix the problem as early in the chain as possible, don't wait to fix things later with some post EQ.

    We still haven't heard the sample of this sound, and even then, we'd have to hear the whole mix in order to truly criticize it.

    once you get a session where the mic was placed a bit too far from the cone will quickly change your mind. All in all I think boosting the upper mids or top end on the guitars is quite prevalent in pop/rock methinks..

    That's a peculiar approach but I might try that sometime. Typically I start with a HP at 500hz, a LP at 637hz and a 6db boost with Q 0.2 at 530hz. Instant metal.

    Also a 12:1 comp with the threshold around -52db really helps to leave the guitar as lifeless as a cat that happens to cross my path.
