How much is my 1969 Wilson Guitar worth?

I need to find out how much my guitar is worth. It's a 1969 Wilson Guitar hand made by Hiroshi Yairi. It's numbered 133. I inherited it from my dad, but sentimental value aside it is in very good condition. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Wilson guitar

I have a 1968 semi acoustic my Dad bought me for 83 Guineas. I wrote an email to one of the Wilson brothers in the 90s for a valuation. He replied “ I don’t give valuations on my guitars. If you want to sell it and someone offers £5000 or £50 and you still want to sell , then sell it “ He basically said someone will pay for a guitar they want. He was in his eighties then.

Wilson WF-115

I have the same WF-115. Looks and plays beautifully. I would say it's worth at least $300. Sound board looks a bit darker and may be cedar.

re: JR-3 wilson folk guitar

I had an old Wilson folk guitar many years ago. Regrettably it was knocked from it's stand by a rambunctious child and the headstock snapped off. Back then I couldn't find anyone to fix it. I've been looking recently to find one. I don't know what a JR-3 is but I'd be interested in it.

The only thing I've been able to find that resembles mine is this picture of a 12 string version of it that sold at auction a few years ago for $300. Any resemblance?
