I payed under 100 dollars for her & wouldn't sell her for 0.I am curious of her origins & worth..any..you need a pic to help out .let me know... Jeff Burnsides were Guild's import electrics, imported 20-25 years ago if I'm not mistaken. Is there anything you can tell me about this piece?? #1 and signed by the three guys who made it) made in 1996 and it is still in new condition. UPS recently destroyed my DV-72 that I had spent a year tracking down!
