I think you're right - it is a good sound.

There's an article about Sound Techniques studios

If you can get a good clean, fairly dead, guitar recording (doubling as necc.) you can fake the rest pretty much. I'd use a tiny bit of room reverb, then a touch of compression, and then a little bit of a nice plate reverb.

A lot of budget capacitor-microphones have far to much going on in the top end for tasteful AG - if you're stuck with something like that be prepared to turn down that top end a couple or few dB.
it's meant to sound like that...
