As many of these as I’ve had, the only Norlin era guitar I ever regretted of getting rid of was a fire brand SG. The Les Pauls are heavy, the necks are lackluster to me. If I was going to buy a $3000 guitar I would like, I’d find a used ReIssue.

To each his own....

I have a Norlin that after people play it, they’d kill for it. Lol.

Awesome guitar ... is it possible to know if it was Kalamazoo or Nashville built? How much does it weigh?

If it has the 8 digit serial number then you can tell the factory from the batch code.
Also the Kalamazoo made in USA orientation is 90deg out from the Nashville one

Congrats. That's a beauty. Some Norlins are real winners. But keep it quiet... we like the lower prices.
