I just wanted to know how to tell which pickup is the rhythm/lead on a Les Paul, and I believe most Gibsons follow that same pattern anyways.

I know how it works on Fenders, but just not for Gibsons.
If I had my way, I'd crush your face in the door.

Rhythm is the neck pickup and the Treble pickup is the lead or the bridge...I think.

You're right

Yes I also believe that is right. If you think about, treble=boost. So treble (bridge) is lead.

It usually says on the pick up switch plate.

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.

rhythm- neck pickup, treble - bridge pickup.

The person I quoted is wrong though. Treble doesn't equal boost, it means it brings out (boosts I guess) the highs, but it doesn't mean just a boost. The names are misleading btw because most of the time when I play rock (I'm a reggae and blues man) I use the Bridge (Treble) for rhythm, and the neck pickup (rhythm) for lead.
