That guy is right about a decent guitar and any high gain amp workng to play Metallic...
How many times have you heard a bar band with a cheap rig, guitar, but playing like hell on fire.... cover a good Metallica song. It's mainly in the playing, beer, and party vibe. Without being able to hear the real band live vs. the cover band, only a handfull of us tone freaks give a solid sh!t..... IMO Rock and Roll is something to be experienced with fists pumped. I am willing to bet Metallica still rocked the house back in the day when they had crap for gear.... Any 12 year old kid with some crappy guitar, POS amp, and a distortion pedal can cover the staple Metallica riffs. No doubt part of the reason they are so popular. That guy in the video is exactly right.
