Re: Epiphone Les Paul Special II: Switch Question
Hey Original Poster,
Just wanted to give you a little clarification because you seem a bit confused. First, the whole rhythm/treble thing. It really doesn't mean what you think it means. The "rhythm/treble switch" decides which of the two pickups you'll be using. A pickup is what creates the tone coming out of your amp, and is comprised of wire wrapped around magnets (in laymans terms). If it's set to rhythm, you'll only be using the neck pickup, i.e. the little black oval thing with little metal dots in it as soon as the neck ends. If you select treble, you'll use the bridge position (the one next to the saddle). If it's in the middle, it uses both pickups. This is by no means any special feature. Switches are used on almost every guitar worth buying.
I would suggest you read up on the basics on how an electric guitar work (switches, volume, tone, etc). I think things will much more sense to you.
After that I would suggest considering a professional setup (or learning how to set it up yourself, if you have the desire), and learning the basics of setting up your amp, because as a practice amp the MG10 isn't too bad.
