    That!!

    A LOT of times I don't even low pass - only notch out annoying frequencies. When I do, I rarely even use 12dB.

    Yeah you can get rid of the extreme fizz with mic combination/positioning, I already tried that several times but I don't master that way of doing at all myself.

    Yeah, that too. I don't master that art either.
    The thing is that I find "full bandwidth" guitars very pleasant sometimes. It depends on the context and the source cab. Take the guitar tone from American Idiot for example: there's a lot of fizz going on and one could easily filter that out, but I don't think it's necessary.

    Contrary to my previous post, I recently found a thread where Dan Korneff mentions using a 6db low-pass that just starts to drop off around 5kHz... from what I can tell, that means parking the filter at 9 or 10kHz. I feel like it kills the whistlefizz much more than you'd expect, without removing all your top end.
