I bought a 1973 Les Paul Std. new for about $500. That was a good deal at the time.
$250 and $300 for a Burny Super Grade Tobacco Sunburst and a Burny Black Beauty both brand new Fuji-Gen guitars when I was in Japan in 1983. They may not have said Gibson on the headstock, but they were real deal Les Pauls.
