  • Identifying classic 57 pick ups

    Is there any way when looking at the pick up ( front or back you can tell it is a Gibson classic 57?

      do a google image search and you should find some good photos of the backs of '57 classics

      look for the nice new paf sticker, base plate config and screws.

          The font of Patent Applied For on the 57 Classics that I have is gold rather than what appears to be silver on those. I don't know if that makes a difference.

            let me put it this way they are ONLY two pups out there with this sticker
            one is the RI classic 57's and they other is the real deal $2000-5000 a set P.A.F's
            I am assuming you have the classic 57's

              If only, right? They supposedly came out of a Gibson 57 Historic, so they sure are the RI 57 Classics. It could be that the font in that picture really is gold and it's just the angle or something.

              Do any other pickup makes stick Patent Applied For stickers on there? What do Burstbuckers say?
