    Anyone know what kind of amp Ed used on this song?? I know he used a Strat, but besides that not much else. What pickup position?? Seems to me after playing around, it was either the neck pickup or the combo neck/mid. But it still dosen't sound right on...I don't think there was an effect on there but any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I am Pretty sure I read somewhere that he Plugged a strat straight into the Mixing Board. It tends to give a little bit different warmth, especially if it's an old analog board like I assume Ed has in 5150.

    I thought he used his Ripley not a Strat?
    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    I thought he used the Ripley stereo guitar.

    Additionally, I thought the board he purchased was solid-state, but modified.

    He used a fender strat directly into the mixing board, with no DI box. EVH said that he used a lot of fenders during the recording of ou812. Back then he was in talk with fender for an endorsement. He had a lot of special made guitars for him, one of those were used for the recording of runaround in the next album

    Yeh I have read that a Telecaster was used for Runaround. The word is that fender wanted a deal with him and gave him a red Tele to try, so he used that to record Runaround.
