Hello

The Alvarez RD guitar model SBU has a current value of $1***-**-****.00. Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
It was a pleasure working for you. If you have more items you need values for. Just send to "Glenda Only" I would be happy to help.

It is a RD-30. if that changes anything. On the Gibson they show 1965 and 1967 as possible years . Yet I heard that all 1967 have a zero in front. I am assuming they are referring to the ES-330.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Is the appraisal the same for the Alvarez RD-30? I believe the Gibson to be a 1965 from memory but i bought it used in 1971.

Yes they are the same. The Gibson is 1965.
