That's definitely sound processing, not guitar technique. I suspect judicious use of plug-ins, but can't be sure.

Not sure exactly what you're referring to here but all that's going on there is you have two guitars playing different things; one's playing a very lightly overdriven (almost no gain at all) rhythm figure and the other has a bit more gain and hits the same chords once per change. There's really nothing fancy going on but it's never going to be a sound you can get just playing on your own.

The very first power chord breaks up in an interesting way. That effect is what i'm curious about.

It starts out sounding like just a chord that he let ring, but then it decays into an intermittant "cutting-out" sort of sound.

Then I have no idea what you're talking about; I can't hear anything sounding like it's cutting out at all.

I hear nothing but two guitars -- one clean and the other overdriven mildly (a very nice tone, I might add). While I don't hear what you're talking about regarding a "cutting out" sound -- I think what makes that chord sound a little different is the voicing. I'm pretty sure the chord you hear ringing out is a reverse power chord -- not a standard one. They tend to sound bigger, thicker, and more harmonically complex.

The chords are really simple:

b|---------
g|---------
d|-9-9-7-9-
a|-7-7-5-7-
d|-0-7-5-7-

Is that swirl you're talking about?

Sometimes amps just seem to do that.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

"Swirl" isn't a word that would've occurred to me but after you said it I can see how you might call it a swirl.

That's literally just an interaction of the chords and the gain. Nothing at all weird going on there.

it's one of those words that TGP goes nuts over

I'm not sure if it's a real thing or not. But if it is, I suspect that's what you're hearing. If that makes sense.

Try getting a nice overdriven tone on your amp, then dialing the volume knob back just a little on your guitar. I don't hear any effects but I do hear what you are talking it. It's sounds kinda like if you were to hit the same notes on two strings but one of the notes was slightly out of tune, the desconstructive interference kind of makes the note flutter.

Not saying that's what's going on here, it's definitely just how the chord interacts with the over drive. Sounds nice.

Flutter is a really good word. I know you're hearing it.

I think it sounds awesome and I would like to be able to do it myself. I am guessing solid state amps won't get it done.

It sounds more obvious on a better stereo. My car stereo is pretty nice after I did a few upgrades and it was there that I first noticed it. I can hear it on my cellphone too, but it's more difficult to pick out.

that might be what it is, actually, the notes being very slightly out of tune.
