when you've got a band should both the guitar's have the same/similar tone?

Depends on your taste. A lot of the times rhythm and lead have very distinct different tones. Depends on if you guys wanna get extra oomph by playing the same stuff, or if you want people to be able to hear both guitars distinct sounds.

no not neccessarily. ones rythym and ones lead. usually the lead is more treble and the rythym is bassy. but in they should share the same similar tone.

ok cheers, if we went for the first option would it be better to have one played on the bridge pickup and one on the neck pickup? or does it not really matter

Yup. My preference is for a more fully textured sound. I want different, interesting guitar tones within the track, and a wide variety of sounds from the guitars over the course of the set/CD.

usually that is,
i play lead/soloing with lotsa bass and using the neck pick up while the rhythm plays chunky stuff with some agrre tone.

Look at it this way- everyone rags on air guitar here because everyone can play guitar. If we were on a lawn mower forum, air guitar would be okay and they would ridicule air mowing.

I prefer finding the best attributes of the guitar/amp setup of each guitarist and playing on that. My Mesa has mucho bottom end, and extreme drive. My rhythm guitarist's Marshall has more of a midrage sound with a bit creamier drive. When you mix the two together you get tonal ecstacy! Find your own tone, and have your other guitarist do the same, and if they work well together enjoy!
