I hadn't thought of it before, but I'm a total fan of the "screw sound proofing, close mic that cab" method. Once I stopped trying to get room ambience and stopped trying to go direct (removing speakers and mics from the equation, for me, ruins everything), I found I could get a decent sound with minimal effort. Just get the levels right and you're golden.

Exactly. And if you mix through headphones or close monitors, so your control room acoustics stop being a factor, it becomes even easier.
I love modeling so much, though. I think I actually spend less time tweaking in software--I just grab a good sound and go. Easy on my neighbors, too.
