David,

I would consider using a DI box.. You may also wish to consider miking an
amp, even an SM57 sounds great. A nice recording amp with a powerbrake will
sound like a stack at full blow on 2.

as for splitting the signal, it's a decent idea, in a perfect guitar setup
you want to record a DI box and a mike on different tracks so that later you
can go back and 'reamp' or 'remike' your dry signal by running it through an
amp/mike and rerecording it if the original amped track proves troublesome.

if you have noise contraints, I'd suggest at the very least a DI box.

best

Should I have something in the chain to match impedance, or is the clippingjust because my pickup signal is too high?  I can eliminate it by turning theguitar or the pre-amp down but this can lose tone.

Second QuestionThe mic input feeds to Alsa PCM Inputs 5 and 6, but of course is just 2identical streams.  I have been recording the guitar to a stereo track usingboth channels but wondered whether there was any benefit in doing this, or
whether it would be better: * take a single input and split it to a stereo track? * take a single input and record it as a mono track? * take a single input and feed it to a mono-stereo plugin and record

  it as a stereo track?__
