A couple days late - but a good story here! About 10 years ago, I had a 1978 Marshall JMP and a 1998 Les Paul Standard in Cherry Burst. I decided to ask my then fiance to marry me - and to help pay for a ring, I sold both my JMP and my LP Standard. The other day, I purchased a Deluxe that I opted to keep and the day before it got here, my wife found a 98 Standard exactly like I used to have.....on Guitar Center of all places, for $1629 plus shipping. My wife suggested I purchase the guitar so I can have one exactly like I used to have and "Play it daily on your Aerosmith amp!" It arrived today, and it is immaculate. Original hardshell case, paperwork, all of it. I can't find a flaw on the guitar. Its even got a tiny amount of flame that my previous 98 didn't have. This guitar brings back so many memories to me and I can't be more thankful that the wife is still around, and I now have the guitar I loved when I was younger. It's not the same one - but its dang close!!
