I had the same guitar in red sparkle finish. They are players! I'd say $1100-$1300. Do you like the sound of mini-hbs? I didn't when I had the guitar way back when, but I've heard other people make them sing. If you don't like them, you can always replace them with p90s with no routing involved. Nice three piece top on this one. Looks good.

I thought the ones with the sparkle finish (Red and Blue) were worth quite a bit more money? As they are harder to find..

They didn't make many of the sparkle finish deluxes, I think they only made the red in '74 and the blue in '75. I saw a red one on ebay a few months ago, it had a repaired, broken headstock and it went for $2100. I sold mine around 1990 for something like $1000.

Well' date=' I wouldn't buy a ('74) Gibson Les Paul through Ebay; you never know what you're gonna get if you don't play it first. It could be Norlin dog.

And it may be a Norlin gem, like mine. Just because Norlin let some dogs out into the world doesn't mean they are all bad.

 

On the other hand, I'd never buy a guitar through eBay, period.

My Norlen era Les Paul plays and sounds sweet so I wouldn't discount them. In fact the first LP I played was a 74 deluxe and that is the LP I truly fell in love with. I may buy this one listed if you take too long.... Well, not really I'm out of money right now.

F-N-A I love my Norlin there are some issues with cosmetics from factory but minor and I don't care about looks. It plays and feels great. And the one on the original post is on craigslist not ebay anyway. So go look at it.
