Sure, it's always nice to be able to adjust things will listening instead of while playing. I personally just wouldn't rely on it - mic placement is 99% of the game with solo guitar, and there's more to it than timing/phase between mics, as you know. So I try to get it right going in. If a tweak is necessary to save a good performance, that's cool, but I'd try to fix it with the mic placement for next time. Just my approach, tho. You know there are also these plugins that let you change the mic placement (somewhat) virtually during the mix. I've played with them, but never heard anything I'd use.
