Beginers Pick-up Question


Recommended Posts

Well I think he means, on Gibson guitars the switch is labelled "rhythm" and "lead". I'm assuming what armadillo meant was the bridge pickup corresponds to "rhythm" and the neck to "lead" (since he said "neck" for both :P).


You can test this by turning the switch so only one pickup is on, and tapping each one with your pick. Usually it's pretty clear which one's on.

Trebble or Lead is always at the bridge, brighter sounding.

Rhythm is at the neck, darker warmer sounding.


But don't let the names trick you. you might like lead guitar on the rhythm pickup, depends on what sound you're after..

Don't forget about the middle setting where you can blend the to pickups together .
