I tend to go for a really neutral sound, nothing is accentuated at all. I can't remember what pack it came from or what distributor, but I use a BROHYM Mesa 4x12 with a 57 IR (out of over 1,000 IR's I have) on everything....I think I've got a couple Marshall cabs that I found work really well too. I was using some that had some pretty good bass in the IR's, but once I tracked the actual bass they just got swallowed up.
One thing that helped me a TON was using a hi-pass filter on the cabinets because there was still some honkey "ooomph" that was muddying up the palm mutes. I was trying for a good day or so to find a cab that solved it while retaining it's sound, then I saw the hi/lo pass filters on Lecab and started messing around....within a minute or so I got what I needed.
Sometimes when I'm tone digging, I have to remind myself that I'm just tracking right now and all I need is something to get the idea across, it's all DI and shit is going to change drastically by the time I start mixing.
Are you getting these tones with the bass guitar already laid down? If not, I wouldn't spend a huge amount of time worrying until the mixing phase. It'll only slow you down to spend weeks getting a killer guitar sound for tracking only to find out later that the bass/guitars are fighting each other for space in the mix.
