I have a 2005 Gibson Les Paul Faded with a 60’s neck profile. The bottom of the neck pickup has a sticker that reads #1 AL V Wound by PS. The bottom of the bridge pickup has a sticker that reads #3 wound by SW. They both have the PATENT APPLIED FOR sticker. Is the bridge pickup original?

Burstbucker Pros from that timeframe, were marked like that. But, I thought Bridge PUPPs were usually Marked #2 AL V wound by

should be Pros, sounds like you've got BB1 and BB3. Look at the pots to see if they look original.

Pots are all original even the soldering looks original. The pots all have Gibson on the bottom.

Burstbuckers, usually have BB#1, BB#2 or BB#3, not just #1. Older BB Pros (i.e. 2005ish) actually had #1 for Neck and #2 for Bridge.
