and came to the conclusion that "not really". Also there's plenty of great sounding albums recorded with those already. So I guess the solution is stopping worrying and recording stuff however you like.
I can't tell the difference anymore, maybe during mixing, not in the final product. If you'd have asked me the same question 5 years ago, I would have given you a different answer. Especially not in the context of the guitar being played through a sim, adding compression, adding reverb, etc.

Still, one thing that remains different, and why I sometimes record through an amp, is actually due to the objectively BAD sound I get from an old amp. I have one with a spring reverb unit that I think is bent.

Also, at this point in vst time, good guitar clean amp sims are more difficult to find.
