I played a 1995 Gibson Les Paul Standard and liked it enough to consider buying it. I was wonder which pups are installed and if the quality of guitars made during this time at Gibson was good. Also, is the neck a 50s or 60s neck?

A quick call to Gibson Custom Service with the serial # will tell you every bit of that and more. I called last week about my LP.

Pickups would be a 490R and 498T.

ALL Standards of that era feature a '59 style rounded neck.

I had a 1996 Standard and kicking myself for trading it even for a RI new Firebird V. Mine was a tobacco burst and was light for a solid guitar and really was a good playing & sounding iinstrument

Mine is a 99, which should be the same specs/era. Amazing guitar, round thicker neck, good weight, awesome sustain. As said it should be 490r/498t, so pickups would probably be the weakest link if it plays well.

I have a 96. The neck has been broken twice......still plays incredibly well. I am toying with changing the pickups out though.....not sure what to go with....leaning towards the 57 Classics.

I have a 1995 Standard. Great player and great tone. No electrical / playability issues, bu some finish cracking around the headstock logo which appears to be a rather poorly fit inlay. Other than that, I love it.

I had '90 Std. It was a great guitar, but I could never bond with the gloss finished neck. It had 490R and 498T pups.

I prefer the Classics of that time period. ABR-1 Bridge (vs. Nashville), thinner neck, hotter pickups.
