If I want to have a guitar only for recording purposes, should I be looking for something specific? By that I mean, not caring about playing live also means I don't care about how loud the guitar is, because I can just pull up the gain of the microphone. And maybe, and I just say maybe, dreadnoughts for example have a body shape that everybody likes because they sound good when you are playing at a campfire.
Buying a smaller guitar (like a 'concert' body shape) would also save me money, while maintaining that same sound via pulling the gain of mic. I am probably wrong with that? Please correct me if I am.
So should I be searching for a specific body shape, wood, series of guitars?
The reason why I am asking this, is because Breedlove have a series of guitars called Studio where they say and I quote:
Nothing matches the excitement of recording your music, and the Studio Series is specifically designed to be your perfect companion any time you lay down tracks. Its stunning clarity and articulation come from pairing a maple back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top—a tonewood combination that provides dynamic response and incredible versatility that suits any style of playing and any musical genre.
I don't know if it's just a marketing thing..
