I recently found this old guitar in my sister's husband's storage unit and he gave it to me. Apparently some tweaker he jammed with gave it to him and he just left it in the storage unit. I cleaned it up and added some new strings to it and its working just fine. The problem is that I cant find anything about this "Penn" brand and it makes it harder since it doesn't have a serial number. The only lead I have is another Penn guitar that's an acoustic found here http://www.vintagecustomguitars.com/VINTAGE-PENN-LOS-ANGELES-CALIFORNIA-BRANDED-KAY-PENNCREST-ACOUSTIC-GUITAR-WCASE-for-sale_603.html

I need help figuring out what this thing is and how much it's worth
Here are a couple pictures of the guitar


FYI The picture of the full guitar was taken the day I got the guitar and the rest are a week after iv'e cleaned it up and added the new strings to it.

Especially since it's Japanese-built (assuming that is what the neckplate says?) it looks to me like one of the cheapish brands sold in US department stores during the 60s or 70s. A classic (although I think a tad more upmarket) example would be Silvertone Teiscos. Not being from one of the bigger brands, this one probably isn't worth very much, but still a really cool guitar to keep around, which is probably what I'd recommend, if I'm honest. Selling it, I'd expect $200 absolute tops.

Don't know if this will help.

Different brand under the same name; the about page says they were formed in '94 and "Handcrafted in the USA" would be an odd fate for a '60s MIJ brand.

Yes it says made in Japan on the neckplate and under the bridge
