So How Do You Mic For This Guitar Sound?

I have real short mp3 if anyone would take the time to listen, just about 10 seconds or so, that demonstrates something that I'm not sure how to mic.

This song opens with a guitar doing a chordal riff. But it sounds like it's in stereo. Other guitars join in that are plainly mono and coming from one side, but this first guitar is coming out both sides.

There are no effects that I can discern on the guitar itself (slap, etc) so does this mean they took two mics on the cab and split them to two tracks and panned? Or a stereo mic?

Pardon my ignorance but if I don't ask I won't know, thanks. Here's the link:

My guess is it's the Haas effect.
