That is a poor generalisation, there are plenty of good Norlin guitars, and the late 70s and early 80s are some great guitars as well, the late 60s and the 70s LP will be the collectors of the future.
The higher end Sgs will hold good value, but unless you have a mint Sg Jr, with OHSC you won't accrue much value

In 1977 bought a 1978 Les Paul Pro that looked exactly like the photo, P90 pups, ebony fretboard, MOP inlay. It was a beauty, but I was frustrated because I could not afford an amp at the time. I traded it later that year for a 1970 Chevelle SS with a 412cu in (rare). However, the rear main seal was shot, so I got the "short end of the stick" on that deal. I rebuilt the engine and had a blast with it. I have seen the 1978 LP Pro sell for $1800-$3000 depening on the condition. They are hard to find.
