Takamine EN12C12

I've just bought a s/h Take EN12C12 - It's made from some beautiful woods - anyone know what they are & how much the guitar is worth these days?

The back and sides are laminated Australian lacewood--and yes, they do look nice! I just had my EN12C12 repaired and set up. The top is solid spruce.

As far as value...list on these was $1250; they are, unfortunately, worth a good deal less than that.

Not that they've depreciated--just that the list (as always) was way high.

Some advice: watch the bridge. It will pull away from the top. String it w/ light gauge or Dean Markley Medium/Light gauge strings to avoid this, and pay attention to humidity.
