I replaced the stock pups in my Les Paul Standard last year and want to put them back in, but I didn't mark them when taking them out. The only difference I can see is that one has 4 small screws in the back and the other 4 larger screws. Which is the neck, which the bridge pup?

If you have an multimeter, measure the resistance between the two leads of each pickup. The pickup with the higher resistance should be the bridge pickup.

Actually, I figured it out looking at the poles. Adjustable poles on top =neck; adjustable poles on bottom=bridge. Thanks.
