Looks like close to what he wants...what is the serial number, and where are you and the guitar located? I don't recognize the .ch domain. Holy crap, is that in China?
You need to consult an unbiased expert to establish a fair price. I surmise that if a similar period OO-21 like the one I found above goes for $5000 (assuming a bit of haggling from the asking price of 5500), 3-4000 might be ballpark for an OO-18 in good shape. Just a guess. I suspect it's more of a collectors' than a players' market, and for better or worse the O-series 18's are not the most sought-after by collectors, although neither are they disdained. The more O's, the better the price.
I'm surprised Guest hasn't responded yet, he's been following his thread closely (which speaks well of him!)
