Good morning,

My name is Matt and I wanted to say hello. I have a question that i hope I can get help with. I have a 1979 Les Paul Custom Silverburst. I got the guitar in 1988 and it had Dimarzio Super Distortion pickups in the bridge position. I am looking to restore the guitar back to factory and need help in finding out what type of p/u it had at the time of production.

Thanks again for the help!

I saw somewhere online that a '79 LP SB had "original T-Tops" in it. (http://www.mylespaul...erburst.255325/)
Another similar '79 Custom (non-SB) had "'PAT NO' t-top humbuckers". I'm seeing '79 T-Tops going for $190ea, to $650/set on Ebay.

+1 to the above; T-Tops were the most likely, although Gibson occasionally used a model called a Super-Humbucker I believe. T-Tops would be period-correct, though.

Things with Strings...
2002 Fender Squier Affinity Stratocaster - "Janus".

2013 Gibson USA Limited Les Paul Traditional Pro II - "Negroni".
2014 Gibson USA 120th Anniversary Les Paul Studio - "Jupiter".
2015 Epiphone Limited EJ-200 Artist - "Nightmaiden".
2016 Stagg M20 Mandolin - "Octavia".

Things I've Built...
First build; cross between a '57 Goldtop & the Lou Pallo Signature Les Paul; thread here [in progress and sadly on hold]

Things without strings...
Marshall MG15DFX.
Orange OR15.
Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal.
