There's the bridge pickup and the neck pickup. But I've heard of them referred to as lead and rhythm pickups. Which one's lead and which one's rhythm?

I do believe you just used Blink 182 and hard rock in the same sentence. It would seem you're rather confused.
I have a quote in my signature! And it makes fun of blink-182! I'm cool now!

lead=bridge
rythm=neck
(neck gives warmer tones, which make it more suitable for rythm guitar)
Gear:
Fender Jazzmaster
Boss DS-2
Digitech RP150 (with Line6 EX-1 Exp pedal)

I guess it would depend on the style of music.

If you're using high output humbuckers at least, lead is generally neck position whereas rhythm is bridge.

That's what I thought.

The bridge generally give's a more bass driven tone, so it's more suitable for rhythm.

Then again doesn't the neck use less treble and sound more "jazzy"?

I dunno, I just play everything on the bridge pick-up, everything sounds more "even." It's mainly a matter of preference.

for gibson style guitar
lead = bridge
rhythm = neck

but it doesnt mean you cant use neck pickup for lead riffs

Neck=rythm (more base rhythmic chords, riffs)
Bridge=Lead (more treble solos and what not)
#7
I use the neck for lead (I play a lot of blues), but the correct way is Bridge as lead and Neck as rhythm.
