how to get such a guitar stereo image..?

hey guys i was wondering how this guitar is recorded: (0:00-0:20) i don't know how to get such a stereo image.. for example the squeaky pluck of the guitar sounds like it starts from the right side and goes to the left. maybe such a stereo image and perfect panning is possible with recording two guitars, but it sounds like only one.. i thought it's a special stereo recording technique and watched that tutorial: (on 3:36 you'll hear the different techniques)
but thats not the same.
what do you think??

This is exactly what you get when you double-track (that is: two separate performances, each recorded in mono), and pan the two takes hard left and right. The performance needs to be tight - and, most likely, edited for extra tightness. Things like fret noises when sliding will, at least for me, frequently be the most variable part of the performance, hence you'll occasionally experience it shifting in the stereo field if one slide is especially squeaky on one take or the other (or, conversely, especially quiet).
