by 62 you mean a reissue 62' ? how old is it?

Hey Tony,

I don't know the actual production numbers on Sherwood Green but I think it was one of the less common colors. According to the 2005 Vintage Guitar price guide you're looking at something between $25,000-$30,000 USD. Congrats, you won the lottery. SB

:? By "pre-CBS" I'm assuming he means "not a reissue" and by "1962" I'm working out that makes it 43 years old, Lee :P

If our man SB looks in soon, he could give you a vintage guitar guide value. OTOH, check out his site.

Pics would be nice, Tony, but I think the short answer is "a lot". Have you altered anything much? If not, it'll be over US$10,000 even with scrapes and dings. Take a look at this one gone past $4k, and it's had so much replaced it's almost a pre-CBS in name only:

This 1965 (not sure that's really a "pre-CBS") with issues sold for $3900:

Hope this helps, but I can do some links for you. You might want to use one of the reputable dealers, rather than risk the eBay.

Ah, SB got in there while I was still chewing my pencil. Have a look at for some dealer price ideas. If you can manage to post a pic here, we'd love to see it.
