Back in my day (when I started), Mexifenders were $349 max at GC. American Standards were $799, and I had a friend who got an American deluxe HSS for about $1k as a birthday gift. We were all in awe. I've given up the aspiration for any Gibson, unless it's used. The new ones play like crap, the tuner-on-headstock is horrible, and they just feel crummy.
