Gibson 83 custom pickup?

Recommended Posts

hi!it’s my first post! I hope you can help me get rid of my doubts! It’s my first post!
i have a custom black les paul 83
dated 18/01/1983.

the guitar has the neck pickup with engraved pat 2737842 and in ink 489 382

the bridge pickup instead recorded pat no 2737842 but in ink he wrote Jan 17 1979

do you think the pickups have been changed or have they been made so by gibson?

the pick-up of both pickups also has a nice hole where the connection wire passes, it is not very finished! are yours too?

I have a Les Paul Custom Black from 01/24/1983. It has exactly the same pickups as yours and they are Tim Shaw pickups. By the pictures I have a strong belief that these are the original ones that came with the guitar.
