Solid spruce top and laminated jacaranda back and sides, with a really nice carved headstock.
You and I both know that guitars, in that era 1970-1980, are generally worth more "in sounds" than the asking prices. Mainly because there is little demand as well as little knowledge on these guitars.
Terada G720 is a higher model, hence the head stock carving.
It likely has a good voice and elegant look (laminated BRW back).
I don't know the market value of this guitar.
My own rule of thumb on used guitars:
Around $200 (US dollar) good buy because it can be resold quickly without much loss.
$300-$400, I would buy only if I like the guitar.
Beyond $500, it has to be a guitar that I have been wanting.
Beyond $1,000, it has to be a good guitar with a famous label.
