Bought a 99 Standard with a repaired partial neck break for a good European price. Changed the 490/498 for Seth Lovers. Also changed the messy electronics for a Mojotone premium prewired setup. Very satisfied in every way! Awesome guitar!

Congrats, I just bought a Standard too. This is certainly one of those guitars that Gibson just got right.
Enjoy!

The '90s Standards typically had a darker cherry than the 2000s ones and I like it.

Anything I should be extra-aware of regarding the headstock repair? It seems fine.

If it was done properly, the glue joint is stronger than the wood. If you don’t notice any separation, it’s good.
Congrats!
