He does use his Floyd Rose tremolo bar though.

Epiphone SG G-400

Laney TT50-112

Ibanez Weeping Demon
Marshall RG-1 Regenerator
Electro-Harmonix/Sovtek (Black) Big Muff Pi

none, i think,

he does some pinch harmonics and uses the whammy bar

I've actually heard that the high note that sound like a harmonic or whammybar pull, was infact the string slipping of the fretboard and somehow making a harmonic or contact with one of the pickups. Hence, the reason that he'd never been able to properly reproduce it again.

That sound was a string snapping I have read.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

Maybe that.. Been a looong time since I read anything about it, I may be mistaken

From the GW interview.....
http://www.guitarworld.com/primecuts_metallica?page=0%2C2


"Well, what happened was, I had accidentally pulled the string off the fretboard! You know how you take an E string, you pull it down toward the floor away from the neck? I accidentally pulled down on the string, and it fretted out on the side of the fretboard. We heard it back, and I was like, ‘That’s brilliant! We’ve gotta keep that!’ Of course, I’ve never been able to reproduce that since"

This is a great read btw.

I believe that the string slipped off the fretboard, and sort of caught for a sec.

Anyway, no effects. Just a pile of Mesa Boogie MKIII's.



Edit: I don't know if these are from Puppets or Justice, but if you can decipher these notes, be my guest!

^ Doesn't look that hard to me.
Top left is how it's mixed - double tracked with an SM57, the numbers show the levels by the looks of it. Middle is B&K - I assume this stands for Bass & kit - top right is the valves, I don;t know about that purely because I don't know how they're set up/can be changed

Middle is the standard EQ for the MkIV with the 5 band EQ as well, as is the EQ underneath it except for different passages. Could probably figure out the rest if I looked and thought a bit more.

You might be thinking of Herman Li snapping a string in Through the Fire and Flames.

One of the best interviews they ever did. I like how he views vintage gear, too.

And no effects.
