As far as the current value, I'm not sure. My instinct would say that $500 is likely high, considering that for not much more you can go and get something brand new with similar specs.
If you want something older and Japanese, you would be best to keep your eyes open for an older Yamaha GC series guitar that might go for a similar price. I have seen some GC3A's in passing for around the same money. For a little bit more you could likely even find one of the GC models that were all solid. Just be patient. I think you would find that the Yamaha GC series would likely be much better than that low model Ibanez. There were some higher level Ibanez that I have heard good things about, but that isn't one of them.
Good luck! Search on the forum here and you will find more.

The Ibanez GA-120S was part of the "Andorra Conservatory" series, produced in the 80s. However, It wasn't the lowest model. Below was GA-100S, GA-120, GA-100, GA-80 and GA-60. Above those were the "Recital" series with GA-300S and GA-400S, GA-500S and GA-600S. The top of the line was called Mastercraft GS-10 and 15, sometimes referred to as GA1000 and GA1200.
Your guitar seems to be in "ok" condition, but certainly not mint, I would say a far price is somewhere between 300-400 dollars max, IF and only IF, you like it.
All the best
