I need some help figuring out what these stock Gibson Historic pickups are. I recently bought this 2005 Custom Shop SG Standard. The solder joints are all unbroken so these are the stock PUPs. I have a PDF of the 2004 Custom Shop catalog and it specifies 57 Classics. I also have the 2006 catalog PDF and it specifies Burstbuckers. Gibson Customer Service just sent me the 2004 catalog when I requested the specs. I am assuming they made the change from 57's to BB some time in 2005. So which are these?
