    I have an Ibanez acoustic/electric that has a balanced as well as a standard TS output. Perhaps that's what is being used. I would not be surprised if the mic is picking up most of the guitar used though. I have only used the balanced out once just to see what it sounds like(not good really) and I had to turn the output of the guitar and the input of the 2i2 as far down as is shown in the video just to keep from overloading the converters. I would guess that some major EQ was going on also.

    Hey guys, thanks for the comments. I just recorded a new cover few days ago, it's a Queen Medley, but here I'll focus on Bohemian rhapsody snippet of my video. Here is the finalized product, Compressed with EQ with some delay and reverb.

    Here is just the guitar for the Bohemian rhapsody part of the song (first 40 seconds or so) and you can hear how it's really muffled.

    And in the final link is the extreme EQ'ing I did to get rid of the muffling. Full high frequency boost (probably not good but I guess I had to), and still not happy with the sound after all that.

    (NOTE: the video is not a live performance, it's just me miming, the guitar was actually recorded about 30cm away from the mic aiming where the neck meets the soundhole - as recommended)

    So either; there's something wrong with my mic OR I'm still doing something wrong.

    ALSO NOTE: You can tell how sad I look in the video because this recording business is driving me nuts now.
