Ok, so I pick up my LP today and the rhythm pick up aint working, I tried messing around with the switch but that didnt seem to be the problem, anyone know what I should try, I could take the pick up off, and see whats wrong with that one.
Any help is appreciated

there is basically no sound coming out, otherwise trebble works fine

Same thing happened to my studio.
But I haven't attempted to correct it yet so I'm not sure what it is. I never play that guitar anyway haha

Check wiring, and the toggle switch, they are the two likely culprits

LP toggle switchs seem a bit dodgy, a guy I know with two old gibby LPs say they eventually go no matter what you do

if its an epi LP custom then i had the EXACT same problem. i didn't really do anything to fix it. i just unplugged the cord from the amp and guitar and i didn't play or turn anything on for a few days. i replugged everything and it started to work again. i have no idea how but no complaints here..

And I'd put money on you all having a dodgy selector switch. It's either broken, got bent contacts or it's simply dirty.

There was a guitar like this at my local GC. Les Paul Swamp Ash, I believe (or something like that) but yeah, the neck pickup wasn't producing any sound. might be a cable inside.

I actually figured it out, looks like my tone nobs are messed up, when I twist them all the way, the sound copletely stops, then I have to twist them back all the way down for the sound to come, so now I have to buy bew pots!

The epi factory switches seem to go out pretty fast. Sometimes you can clean em or bend the little tabs.
