    The rhythm/treble rings are pretty useless and ugly and I'd rather do without.

    I think if I had a Les Paul I'd go with LES/MOORE

    Ahhh, the 'Air' Poker Chip, as featured on many Air Guitars around the world...

    Good choice!

    I saw one once that said THUNDER/LIGHTING which is really cool and fitting of the tone you get from each pickup. I was considering getting one

    Surely they should say "Rock", "Roll". Thus, middle position is "Rock & Roll". :smile:

    I saw one that had Blues and Rock before, so I guess in the middle you get Blues Rock.

    There's heaps of them out there, some quite clever and others not so much. They all make more sense than Rhythm and Treble though.

    Ying and Yang, or Yang and Ying. Isn't it the sound it makes ? OK ... more on a Strat.

    This thread has me curious why Gibson decided to include these things in the first place. Were people forgetting what the switch did? And is it really to help the player, because if so it's upside down.

    Go figure ... just another idiosyncrasy of the electric guitar world, that will never be addressed in certain circles.

    I got a custom one from Philadelphia Luthiers that says "STUN" and "KILL"
    I need to dig it out of my toolbox and put it on a guitar.

    Its pretty normal label switches in electronics, and early in the design life time of the guitar how much labeling it really needed wouldnt have been clear yet. Gibson also labled the top hat knobs so it seems pretty consistant to put some kind of label on this too.

    I personally replaced mine with a Georgia state quarter. The back of the georga quarter is a fruit ringed in laurel leaves. when drilled through the fruit was lost and it left only the milled edge and a set of laurels around the switch. its pretty subtle but I like it.
