you'd really want to find people who know about vintage instruments (and whom you trust) to appraise that. there's a lot of dodginess in the vintage market.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

My first electric guitar was a 61 Duo-Sonic. Cherry red with gold pick plate. That looks like one that has been modded and refinished so it is no longer a serious collectible. They have a short scale and mine was not a great player but... I wasn't much of a player then either. A close-up of the front and back of the head stock as well as a close-up of the bridge and back plate would be useful for identification. More on this line of student guitars:

FYI: I sold mine to a friend for $100.

This one looks mostly original. I wouldn't mind finding my first guitar again but it would not be worth a ton of $$ to me as it wasn't much of a player. A Les Paul Jr was a lot more guitar IMO.
