I think your tech friends are talking line-in guitar, because using a
guitar amp miked up doesn't produce such spikes. If you are doing
direct line-in guitar you can limit damaging spikes by using plenty of
headroom and a limiter. Not talking about the musical limiting effect
here, just a brick wall setting that affects the most powerful spikes.
Also, if looping "experimentally" you will benefit from setting up a
low cut filter before the signal is sent to the speakers (or even
before master dynamic processing, if you are using that).
