    [Help] Slipknot guitar choices

    hey, not sure if this is in the right place ..

    iv recently become addicted to slipknots Vermilion Pt 2 and was wanting to get the same sort of sound. i have asked my guitar tutor whether there is an effect put onto the track or a different guitar, we think they were using a baritone guitar

    was just wanting to get other ideas on what might be involved in getting the same kind of sounds, be it effects / tuning / hardware

    heres a link to the song ( feel free to remove if links are not allowed )

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvetJ9U_tVY

    interested in seeing other ideas

    Thankyou

    Its just a low-tuned acoustic guitar recorded with a decent amount of compression from what I can hear. Look up the tabs for it and check the tuning but I think they tune their electrics to drop B.

    Sounds like a normal acoustic guitar to me (not a baritone). Since Part 1 is on electrics in drop B (BF#BEG#C#), I'm assuming part 2 is in drop B as well. It doesn't sound like there are any effects on the guitar either, other than some usual effects added in mixing like compression, but there are effects like that added to the vocals and the other instruments too (though there are a lot of things other than the guitar going on in that song, such as a piano, strings, multiple layered vocal tracks).

    I'm interested why both of you think it's a baritone. I'm not saying it definitely isn't, but I've owned 4 baritones over the past 12 years or so, and nothing about this song screams "baritone" to me. Their normal six string electrics, although tuned down to B, are at a standard scale: 25.5", I believe.

    What gear are you starting with?

    What is your budget?

    Are you a bedroom shredder? Plan to gig? Plan to tour?

    Are you recording?




    These will factor heavily in our recommendations.

    FWIW, the Jim Root signature guitars are all Fender (25.5") scale length. They just tune low

    I don't think either of them have any signature acoustics though (the song he's talking about is 100% acoustic).

    EDIT:

    If you haven't heard the song before:
