1983 LP standard Tobacco Burst pups

It's hard to say. Not sure if that neck one is a Shaw or not. Here's a pic of the Shaw in my 82 Anniversary LP. It does look as if yours is from that era at least. The Shaws usually have the ink stamp but have a space between the first three numbers and the date (second group). I believe that the Shaws were put into the Deluxes, Heritage 80's, and other prehistorics like the korina V's and Explorers. I think the Standards might have had something else in them. The other pup looks newer, could be a Burstbucker or something similar.

I can't be any more helpful than either cjsinla or Orangeaap.

Perhaps sending the images of the p'ups base-side to Customer Service?


Could you measure the bridge p'up resistance?

It won't narrow it down to the exact type but it might give you a rough idea.


According to Gibson's own spec. pages;


BurstBucker 1s are, typically, somewhere around 6.5 ohms.

B'B 2s, B'B Pros ditto 7.4.

'57 Classics ditto 7.5.

'57 Classic + ditto 8.3

B'B 3s ditto 8.4.


Sorry I can't be of more help.


Nice guitar, btw!
