can anyone confirm Wikipedia info on Les Paul Deluxe production '69-'74?

Wikipedia's entry for Les Paul guitars includes this line in the LP Deluxe section: "Until the end of the year 1974, 90% of the Gibson Les Paul Deluxe manufactured were Gold Top."


I've never seen this ratio of Gold Top to Sunburst -- can anyone confirm this? Elsewhere on the forum it's reported that 10,482 Deluxes were made in 1973. (I've got a '73 Sunburst)

If this ratio is close to correct, then there's about 9,000 Gold Tops and 1,000 Sunbursts in '73.  Given the number of Sunbursts around, it's hard to believe this ratio. Any answer much appreciated!  CH Smith
