It was $1600 brand new, I know this because I bought a 1978 1a at the time. Long necked Ramirezes are not much in favor at present, so hard to say whether that's a good price or not.marcus.sandell wrote:Okay, thank you khayes!
Hmm, would it be "stupid" to sell if for $2900...(I have an offer). Is it way to low?
I would not call that "stupid". If that price makes you happy, go for it - there's nothing like a firm offer. If I were to offer mine, I would be tempted to sell at that price What David said is true - I bought mine in 1980 for $1400.marcus.sandell wrote: Hmm, would it be "stupid" to sell if for $2900...(I have an offer).

If it's in very good shape in a private sale you are generally looking around $3500-$4500 or so likely. A dealer would value it higher then a private seller and may offer it for $6000 or so because they will check it over and offer a return policy, along with the chance to try the guitar out (along with an evaluation of the sound of that particular guitar.. some guitars command a better price because they are excellent examples). If it's in pristine condition, you might go a little higher to around $5000 in a private sale, but people are going to be very wary of buying it without playing it or seeing it considering what you can get for that price elsewhere.
$2900, in my opinion, is a little low for a brazilian model of the 1A that is in very good shape (as per your evaluation). If it were my guitar, I would keep it for that offer if you have the financial resources. But, that is your choice based on how bad, and how quick, you want to sell it. If you just want to get rid of it, then take whatever you can when you can. If you are willing to wait, I would list it higher because it is likely worth more then $2900 based on what you say.
Just my opinion.
Update.. I just saw you were from Europe. I was thinking of US dollars when I was talking. I'm not sure of the conversion for Euro's right now.
