Its a US model, I am sure you could get $500 pretty easily. Unless I am missing something i don't see it going below $600 if it is as stated. Especially with case.

I looked on ebay, the most expensive one I could find was $895 with the hard case, but that was in perfect condition, so would $750 be realistic? Im not planning on selling it but I was just curious

$750 w/hsc would be reasonable. I couldn't speculate any further without good pictures.
