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!!

A very nice guitar.

I sold my 1977 Marshall JMP 2203 half stack to pay for my (first) honeymoon. I did keep my Les Paul.

Congratulations and you have a good wife.

I’m celebrating for u…my number 1 is an 07 HCB…not a fancy standard but she’s a cherry that looks eerily similar

Super happy for you…

Wait. Hold it. Your number 1 ISN'T GOLD?? I... I don't know what to believe anymore.

Seriously though, OP, that's a beauty and in immaculate condition! Congrats! :)

lol I know right
my number 1 even has nickel hardware….it’s sacrilege to my sensibilities but the heart wants what it wants

good for you, OP. It's a beauty.

I like that "play it on your Aerosmith amp". Got a thread about that one?

Yes! I posted it in my NGD Deluxe Thread - and I'll PM you a link to the Marshall forums as I don't know if I can post it here.
