Does anyone know anything about the AE400

Hi all, I'm just after a bit of info on an old Ibanez AE400 Acoustic Electric. Its a mini jumbo shape with a sharp cutaway at the neck. I basically just want to know if anyone knows what it would be worth these days (its between 20 and 30 years old...i think) and is in very good condition. Is it considered a collectors item or anything like that??

Cheers

I have an Ibanez AE400 built in the 1970s. I have had it since I started playing guitar. It was my uncle's and he bought in the 1970s supposedly for US$1500. I don't know how much truth there is to his stories, but it is the best guitar that I have ever played -- and even the Taylors don't cut it for me. I would never trade it for anything -- not even a fully restored 1977 Chevy Chevelle.

The early models were made in Japan, "hand crafted from selected woods" These are worth more then the later models from Korea, They are great feeling and sounding guitars, worth more then they are sold for.
