I recently located a deluxe goldtop serial # 1754xx in VG+ condition. It is stamped made in USA under the serial number. I have a couple of questions. I currently own a '93 custom and an '00 classic and they're both great guitars. The Duchossoir book I have places this serial # anywhere between '70 and '74. The book doesn't tell which models were available in what years. Was the deluxe goldtop available all of these years. If so what features may help me determine the actual model year of this guitar. Also, was the goldtop deluxe produced during the norlin years? What were the norlin years anyway? If it is a norlin will it have any distinguishing features that may help me out. You guys are the experts on this stuff so any help would be appreciated. BTW he's asking $1500. Help me out here so I don't get burned. I already am aware I can get historic goldtops for just a little more cash but I wanted to know any info on this particular guitar. Also, I haven't actually made an in hand survey of the guitar so I'm not sure about the volute.
