How they get the lead guitar sound from CBS storybreak intro?

Hey, how did they get that lead guitar sound on the old CBS storybreak intro?

It's rocks 80's style!

I'm thinking it's probably some guitar going through a tubescreamer/overdrive pedal recorded off some tube amp from the early 80's and multi tracked with slight hard panned?

Am I anywhere close? My hearing for guitars is not as sensitive as it is for other things....

Sounds like a Strat on bridge pickup, not too much overdrive - sounds more "amp" than TS pedal, but who knows

To me it sounds like it has a very short delay/doubling thing going on (maybe a pitch shifter set on a "chorus" sound)

The tone reminds me of Steve Morse/Dixie Dregs "Take It Off The Top"

guessing Eventide H3000 set to slight delay, with pitch shift up and down slightly on L-R, plus an octave pitch shift effect as well. Probably a rack setup - wouldn't be surprised if it was something like an ADA-MP1. I went back and listened and it's pretty gainey .

It seems the theme here is a short delay and a pitch shiftier off a rack gear. Light on the overdrive compared to amp gain with a strat.

Thanks, ill start experimenting.
