    The sound isn't a guitar chain thing, it is a recording/production aspect. It is found on a number of different albums with various players, the common denominator being the time period and most of the same producers.

    I suspect it's probably not a harmonizer but am keeping an open mind on that possibility.

    Here, listen at 1:50 when the drums stop, you can hear rather clearly there is something extra-ordinary happening on the guitar tracks (actually it's all over the entire song, tricks your ears into thinking it's part of the natural guitar amp)

    You're sure it's not just plain-old double-tracking?

    Not really sure which part of the sound you're really trying to pin down. The most commonly used effects on those tunes are filter/modulators in pedal form and drive pedals. Either one of these will add that high end buzz, printing to tape killed a lot of the nasty part of it and allowed it to sound good. While were on the subject, the late 70s and early eighties were tape delay heaven also, including tape flange effects.
