    • I'm going to need more information than that. Is this a guitar you HAVE or a guitar you're looking for?

      What era are we talking about? For anything since the late 80s a model number ending in 60 would typically indicate a guitar with three pickups in an HSS configuration.

    • I have the guitar. I believe it to be a 1961 model 1860. It has two pickups and a tremolo bar

    • Okay, that makes sense. The older models didn't follow the same (or really any) naming conventions.

      I'm not much of an expert on anything older than the late 70s. Beyond that point documentation gets pretty sparse. But if you can share some photos that would be a great place to start.

    • Yes. there is one on Reverb for sale sunburst in colour, missing Trem bar and ashtray cover. Mine is complete. the seller is asking $1050.00 U.S. I would like to know how much a complete model might be worth

    • Is your the set-in (glued) neck version?

    • after closer look at the pic you posted I noticed the truss rod cover, and minor differences on headstock . Could be newer/older model but very similar

    • Yeah, this model was made for several years, so it's not unusual to see some differences introduced along the way.

      I spoke to a guy who knows a lot more about these older models than I do. He thinks yours is probably from '63 or '64; apparently a '61 would be set-neck.

      He says the realistic value for these is $250–500 depending on condition. If you have the original orange/gray chipboard case that would add $50-100.

      If you're looking to sell it, the tricky part is going to be finding the right buyer. I can give you some ideas on where you might list it if you're interested.

    • I don't really want to sell at this time. It seems to be complete and original, and looks really cool in my livingroom . thanks for your help. I do have the case , I would say condition is good to very good, some chips to body
