At 3:51 you can clearly see him playing his famous studio distortion rig which he describes in an interview for guitar world in 1988 where he reveals his use of a Steinberger guitar. “That very nasty distortion you hear at the beginning of the song is basically the result of the Steinberger going through two little amps in the studio—a Fender Super Champ and a Gallien-Krueger. I use a Boss Heavy Metal distortion pedal and a Boss digital delay pedal, which then goes into the Fender Super Champ. And that in combination with the internal distortion on the Gallien-Krueger was how I got that particular sound."
