ive been trying to figure out how to get a decay like this for a while, and i recently found this to be a really good example. how do they get this type of sound? the thing im talking about is how at the end of notes that ring out the sound kind of fizzles and is sort of harsh sounding. is this a type of fuzz pedal or something? it sounds like an amp sound to me maybe combined with a fuzz but i dont know. any insights?

sounds like some sort of a fuzz pedal, or maybe a fuzz pedal running through the OD channel of an amp, then just letting it sustain and bleed out.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

i believe they are overdubbing a normal guitar tone with a guitar running a fuzz with lots of sputter.

something like that will get you the effect. i use a redwitch god of fuzz II. i pretty big factor in that tone is using power chords (as opposed to single notes) so that interference patterns in the complex harmonic structure combine with the sputter to get that sound you desire.

you should prob get suggestions for what fuzz can facilitate the tone without breaking your bank.
