DeArmond M70 Help!

A local seller is offering a red DeArmond M70 - $300 and s/n KC9060632. Seller has no details about age, if it's stock, etc.

No ebay sales on this model and guitar-museum.com is showing two from several years back that sold for $150 & $200.

Any assistance on pinning down age, original specs, etc. is appreciated.

* Local as in seller is about an hour away and I haven't seen/heard/played guitar yet.

I have some details from an email I sent to Fender. The salient tidbits are:

- Model Name: M70
- Model Number: 035-7000-(Color#)
- Body: Solid Mahogany Body
- Neck: Set Mahogany Neck, (.082") Thick at 1st Fret, (.088") Thick at 12th Fret
- Fingerboard: Rosewood
- Scale Length: 24 3/4"
- No. Of Frets: 22
- Width at Nut: 1.6875"
- Pickups: 2 American made DeArmond Gold Tone Humbucking pickups
- U.S. MSRP: $649.99
- Source: KOREA
- Introduced: 7/1999
- Discontinued: 7/2000

So, it was only made for one year. Fender would not release how many were made.; however, based on the s/n I gave them, mine was made in July '99.

I called my LMS for a value and whatever source they had (not sure if it was the online blue book) didn't have a listing for this guitar.

If anybody has a blue book value or any other info, please post.
