probably not a lot to tell ya about,  I have a 95 Standard, and I'd put a good guess out that the pickups were still 490R/498T in 91.

Pretty much a "standard" standard by the looks of it.  Appears to be all original and in excellent conditon.

If the price is "right" I'd hit it.

Well that truss rod cover definitely has the word "Standard" on it!

Was the word 'Classic' used for LPs in 91-92?  :-k

Don't know but they might have started using that instead of  calling them the '1960'  model, which was essentially the same thing with a 1960s profile neck - slimmer than the 50s RIs.

As for the date; 1991-2 was a VERY good period for Gibson.  I wouldn't have thought a 1991 body would 'hang around' in the factory until 1992 but it's not impossible.

If you do make an offer, ensure you get those original pickups as well.

IIRC for sure by 1996 those were in production.
