Westone Rainbow III - What is it worth?

Does anyone have a guitar blue book? *Could someone look up the value of a Westone Rainbow III. *It's a Gibsone ES-335 copy made in Japan in the 80's. *There's a picture at:
http://www.geocities.com/whcall/incF...cs/guitars.jpg. *

You have to copy and paste the link to see it as geocities doesn't allow linking from external pages. *I'm thinking of selling this as I've had some real bad G.A.S. lately. *I'm going to sell the RX20, but probably won't get much for that. *Thanks y'all!

Westone Rainbow III

Bew,
I'm checking my Blue Book 5th addition and they don't give any values for any Westones. They do say that if the serial number starts with either a 4 or an 84 it was made in Japan by Matsumoku company. After that they went to Korea for production. I guess you can still get Westones in England. Sorry I can't offer a money value...

Cool, thanks for looking it up! *Well, I'll take it to Sam A$h and GC to see what they'll give me.

Re: Westone Rainbow III - What is it worth?

Just for information's sake, if the guitar is set neck Japan-made and in good condition, up to $300 or so is an alright price, I would say. The Matsumoku guitars are considered to be of quite high quality, but they tend to sell cheaply in the used market. I bought a beat up '84 MIJ neck-through Vantage for about $50.
