Listening to the second clip: the guitars are clean but the bass is dirty, that balance is a HUGE part of getting this sound.

After this thread, I listened closely to the $4k Gibson J-45 I'm borrowing and hear slight ringing at the headstock. It's just overtones from the tops of your strings.

If there's nobody at the mixer, then hand someone your guitar and then walk over to the mixer and set the levels for yourself.
