Mics on the guitars were SM57's, AKG C3000's, RE-20's, and SM81's. Vocal mic was a RODE NT2000.

I usually change the guitar, amp, or mic for each layer when recording this many tracks of guitars. It leaves less to do in the mix in terms of defining a space for each instrument if they already sound a bit different to begin with.
