Thinking of selling a 1991 RG565 - what's it worth?

I've got a 1991 RG565 I'm thinking of selling, but not sure what it's worth. This one has been professionally refinished in it's original CA red. The repaint may be a negative for someone who wants one 100% original, but then again the paint is probably nicer than you'll see on any other 565 out there (assuming you can find one). These seem to be pretty hard to come by these days.

That's a beautiful 565. Glad you repainted it and gave it a new life

Tough one.

Desirable model from a 'collector' standpoint but guitars are not like cars where repaints and restorations are within the ambit of collector interest. They're more like furniture, where refinish can gravely impact value. So, collector guitar with a major collectibility defect. Still, a very, very well done repaint indeed so you might bring a few collectors back into the fold.

Last one to sell on ebay went for $815 + shipping, in very sharp original condition.
I'm guessing this is pretty safely a $500 guitar, +/- a bit in either direction.
