Sorry for the delay--for some reason Gmail flagged the message as spam :(.

I'll definitely try the panning technique on the guitar tracks, and the
Jamin preset is a big help!

Unfortunately, a big part of the problem is that I recorded the guitar
tracks quite some time ago, before I had a good handle on guitar recording
techniques, so these tracks have less to work with than I'd normally have,
as they were direct-recorded with way too much distortion...

Thanks for the very helpful input!
