Ive been wondering for forever what this effect is. Im not a noob to guitar im just not as "oriented" to products as others. Its the effect at the begining of American Idiot, and Bat COuntry by Avenged Sevenfold. I want one bad. It makes the guitar sound sorta distant, not quieter, but sorta chopped in half with more treble.
Thx

well isnt american idiot just starting with one pickup volume lower so that it gets less distorted?

That's it right there. Same thing for Ohio is for Lovers, Best of You, etc. Anything that sounds distant like that is just using a lower pick-up.

Low Cut is what you are talking about. You'll need an EQ pedal to accomplish it, and an envelope filter wouldn't be a bad thing either.
