    I've owned a LP Custom Alpine for ten years... now I'm convinced I need a burst standard. I just looked through all 26 pages of this thread. Great!

    I thought they would have stamped a 2 on back since it was built backwards.

    It IS MacEnroe's. I took these pictures in 1985 when it was for sale at Guitar Trader in NJ. Shortly after that, it was sold to someone in Japan, then a few years later to John MacEnroe. It has faded quite a bit since I saw and played it.

    I am new to this site. I appreciate it very much. Thanks to all who contribute. I have a plain-top 2001 red burst. Original owner. I think it is beautiful.

    I've scanned some pictures for you, from an old Japanese magazine I have. I'll do some more if there's any requests. ;)
