Wah....? Unless you're using some kind of bluesy or jazz oriented amp, lead channels tend to be warmer, not the rhythm channel. Besides that, the neck pup is definitely warmer sounding than the bridge.

Not sure if inexperienced or troll...

use whatever you think sounds better.

There is only one hard and fast rule about guitar playing: be in tune.

Everything else is just suggestions.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

I agree that the neck pickup always has a warmer sound. But use whatever sounds best. Or look into getting a new amp with a lot better sounding clean channel.

I'm guessing TS has a Les Paul, the pickup selector on those calls the bridge pickup 'Lead' & the neck pickup 'Rhythm'. That is the only thing I don't like about LPs, both pickups can be used for both jobs depending what sound you need at the time.

If the lead channels gets you closest to the sound that's your ideal, then go with that. Simple as that.

It's actually Rhythm, and Treble. But you are right about both being used for whatever.
