Help me figure this effect out please.

Ok so basically I've been trying to figure out this pretty common effect but my random googling hasn't been of much help, so if someone can help me identify what's been done so I can achieve a similar sound that would be cool.

Something like this

at 16 seconds or so

The intro to Periphery - Icarus Lives with the really thin sounding guitar. I'm assuming it's some kind of high shelf with the mids/lows completely scooped out? This kind of sounds like you're playing through a telephone type effect.

Also as a related question, is there some way to gradually apply EQ to a track in Reaper? I mean, if I have that kind of scooped sound and then want to slowly over a few seconds fade the mids and lows back in, how would I do something like that?

It's just another recorded track with low gain, low low end, mid mids, and high highs. I guess you could sort of recreate the effect with a phaser pedal.

btw they stole that sound of woe is me who are tr00 hxc djent

Any DAW, Reaper included can 'gradually apply EQ' through use of automation of plugins.
Do a Google for 'reaper automation' or check it's help section, and you should sort it out.

Ever wonder what happens when Ron Swanson meets 8 string guitar? I bet you're pretty curious now.

High pass, maybe boost some upper mids if you really want. Also, if you're playing a down tuned riff, play it up the octave like in Icarus Lives.
