Well, people have come to expect the final sonic output, not all that 
technical stuff
you mention regarding close micing, coils, etc. But the main point I agree 
with, namely
that it is the "what" that is important to many of us here, not 
the "how".
And all I know is that given the "what" I prefer, plugging my guitar into 
any mixer
board is not a "how" that is going to create the "what".

So, all this for me is about finding a "how" that is the most cost 
and space
efficient way of generating my desired "what". It's a basic engineering 
problem that
will probably be the death of me.

What, how, who, where, why? @*#?!#$
