    It seems like it in the full mix, but when it's stripped down to the guitars, there's a dry take blended with a talk box take up front (worth mentioning - the tone on these takes is very "sculpted". Jerry Cantrell has been known to send his signal to multiple amps - like the "Snorkler" JCM800, an AC30, Bogner Fish, Orange amps etc. and blend them together to create a layered sound). The only wah on the studio recording is during the solo.

    For some reason I thought that as well.

    Here's the studio tracks. You can hear him doing the multi-tracking he always uses. Ex: For the verses, there's one dry guitar track blended with the talk box track, and they sound like different takes. But during the solo, it starts out with a guitar that is probably a Les Paul through a wah-wah instead of a talk box, but is then spliced to a single coil neck pickup on what sounds like a G&L ASAT. The wah was used live instead of a talk box until only recently because he said that it was a ***** to set up correctly, but since AIC uses iso-cabs now with a big enough road crew they can have the talk box set up every night and have it sound consistently good.

    As cool a song as 'Do you Feel' is, I turn it off before the talk box part, as that's gotten old a long time ago. The solos before that are infinitely more interesting. If I were to hear a band do a cover of it, it would be a blessing if they didn't use a talk box.
