That sounds like good news Marion and I was guessing its value was going to be a lot less than that. If you can get that sort of money for it, the sell option does look favourable.
Cap't Bob, I love the story. Mine was my 18th birthday present from my parents (1978) and I haven't a clue what they paid for it but at least they only invested once! The guitar is still going strong although my mother rarely plays it (she tends to stick with the piano as she is quite a competent classical pianist and gets frustrated when she struggles with the guitar). I will have to give it an airing when I visit them at Christmas.
