I have a GW 65 diastone guitar that I want to sell. I bought it in the early '70s in Ottawa Canada. But I don't know what to ask for it. I heard it was made in Japan for Gibson when they were on strike.Is this true? It is a 6 string acoustic and is a red colour and in excellent shape.Looking forward for your reply.Thank you.

Re: Diastone guitar

Sheila, I have a Diastone 12-string WGT-65 that I recently bought from a guy who paid $435 in 1971 in Toronto. In today's dollar that is about $2330. Having said that though, I cannot find any information about this guitar. I have asked vintage guitar experts and they are all stumped. My 12-string plays very sweetly and has great intonation. It sounds as good as any 12-string Gibson or Takemine, I have played. I bought mine for $750 just the other day. I held off finalizing the deal until I could determine if it was worth it, but as I mentioned, no one, and I mean NO ONE (except for this forum and one guy with a FLICR photo dossier) has heard of this guitar. So how do you value it?? I guess the only way is to sample a few guitars that cost sound better and worse and then average the price between them all. So my advice, charge $750, seems like a good value.
