    I've recently got a 95 LP standard. It's been modded abit with new tuners different knobs . Also had a neck break about 10 years ago. I noticed the pups had some gold on left on them and I want to identify them . One has a PAF sticker on and the other just a Gibson usa stamp. Is there anyway these can be identified?

    Hard to see the photos clearly on a phone but at first glance looks to be a classic 57 and a 490.

    Hence the op. 57 Classic, 490 most likely as has been noted.
    The older I get, the better I was.

    In the picture showing the bridge it looks like the bridge may have been rotated; the top E and B saddle slots look wider than the ones at the other end; more like low E and A slots. It may just be the picture.

    Yes. I have a 2005 and the intonation adjustment screws are on that side. So I put it on quickly for the picture.
