My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising musical instruments for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. According to the serial number your guitar was made in 1981. Assuming it is in good playable condition, your guitar would sell for $150-200 at auction and on the secondary market. Insurance value is $350.

Thank you,

Wayne
