Mostly out of curiosity, but also to maybe try out some new things I was wondering. Do you guys use the same guitar and set up for recording that you do live or is completely different? For me I use a Dean Vendetta 4.0 w/floyd rose for recording and for about half of any live set I do, although I use multiple guitars live so I can swap them for different tuning. I have access to all of my guitars when recording but for me, that is the only one I'd ever consider actually recording with. And to anybody who does jump around from guitar to guitar for recording how do you feel it effects your process and sound?

I tend to practice and mess around with a relatively cheap guitar I picked up used, but I always use my telecaster for gigs and recording.  The quality of sound is just enough to where it's worth it, even if the cheap guitar is a little lighter on the shoulders.

I use my standard Epiphone model for practicing, but I switch to a Peavey SR-1 for recording. It's simply of a higher quality, and plus most people don't ordinarily use a hollow body guitar for punk and metal due to the way it resonates... its general tone has been sounding very spacious and open compared to most metal tones, which is pretty badass.
