2 mic phase align

Just a thought, could you phase align by say, going into record, snap a high pitched, quick transient clicking source right at the capsule of one of the mics and then go into playback edit (maybe a form of "track move?) and line up the transients with each other? I imagine that may get at least the direct sound from the speaker in phase really close: your tolerance based on how close your "transient clicker" is to the mic capsule.

I've been digging my TM-2 in omni paired with a M160, or by itself. Usually with the LPF engaged.

That would correct the time between the mics, but not the difference in delay from the guitar speaker to the different mics. You could do something like what you're talking about, though, by recording a click sound from the amp, like clicking the pickup of the guitar with a pick or what have you. This would allow you to align the delay time, but would still not necessarily make the phase sound correct, as different mics have different frequency response, and the room will have a much bigger impact on the distant mic. In the end, you have to use your ears. There's no easy way to do anything in recording if you can't hear if it sounds good (subjectively), if that makes sense.
