The second mix is better. The guitar is warmer. A little buzzy for my taste. Buzz is OK, but it could use some more body. Maybe a microphone closer to 12th fret. The double tracking is a little distracting in headphones, maybe you could pan them a little more toward center.
The vocals still have the lip smacking noise. If you want to keep it in, maybe bring it down a little in level? The vocals also sound pretty heavily EQ'ed. Maybe that's what you are going for. If not, try cutting from the guitar instead of boosting on the vocals. Do you have a low pass filter on them?
I know you said ignore the auto tune, but I can't. Maybe move the pitch detection threshold up a little so the tails don't get mutilated. Or feed it a cue track.
Over all it also sounds very empty. Some reverb may help, and some saturation on the vocals. Or get the rest of the band in their for parts of the song. Another option is to put it up on www.kompoz.com and let someone else add to it.
