Are there other ways to determine the year on a '57 LP Custom besides serial numbers?

Recommended Posts

With all the variations of the serial numbers and the vast inconsistency, are there other ways to verify the year a LPC was made?

I've a lot of random information, different year serial numbers used different fonts, different spacing, different serial number patterns, etc.

For example, say I have '57 Les Paul Custom with a serial number "7 6XXX".

Now this could be a 1986, 1996, 2006 or even a 2016.

What I'm looking for are other ways to identify a LPC, like different tuners, pick ups, pots dates?
