Sorry it is late in Australia. Would rather do it by text

Thank you.

The value on this guitar ranges from $2000 - $3500, depending on condition, playability, and whether all parts are original. The highest value is for excellent condition with all original parts, including original frets.

That is US dollars. If you've been offered $8000 AUD, or about $6500 US, I'd take it! It's nearly double the typical price for these guitars. Yours may be an exceptional example, but even so, I've never seen them sell that high. The highest I've seen these go is around $4200.
