412 Guitar cabs put out a lot of low end. A single 12 guitar cab is great for recording since you can lower the volume and low end content of the setup immediately. Usually a clearer tone.
Check the pedals that are hooked up - are they boosting the low end heavily there? Pedals/amps - usually the typical "0"/flat setting on guitar amps are far from flat sounding and can easily have boosted low end.
Off-axis: look up a mic placement article to see what we are talking about. Start reading about the different techniques and sounds you can achieve.
Hopefully that explains it decently. How are the guitarists getting their sound captured for the recording?
