I have an LP with these letters in the bridge PU route
From what I can tell it is a 2004 standard "Pro"? or "Plus"?
What are the differences between a plus, pro and a regular standard?

It stands for Les Paul Standard Plus. The Plus has a "flameyer" top than the regular Standard.

What bwillard said.

I don't think there exists anything known as a Standard "Pro", although I could be mistaken. "Pro" is usually something seen on the Studio line, when those get upgraded hardware over a regular Studio.

different time, but something to note:

There was a deluxe "pro" with that written on the TRC in the Norlin era.

just info to file away.

In the past Gibson has used "Pro" to indicate that the guitar has the ability to split the humbucker coils.

except, not in the case of the deluxe pro....it came with P-90 single coils, not mini-humbickers.

they also had ebony boards......76-82 or so.....
