is it worth it, bear in mind i havnt played it but the people selling it tell me the intonation and action are all fine


worth it or not?

$500 AUS is about $350-400 US,,isnt it?,,,,,,,anyway

I have an old Del Ray that was my uncles first guitar, im not sure on a year,,, but I dont think its quite as old as the one in question. When I first started playing there did seem to be a collectors market for Teiscos,,,,,but the condition mine is in would make it nowhere near that price range,,,,,

EDIT: Looking at Del Ray's on ebay would make it seem that whoever is selling this to you for $500 is trying to pull a fast one,,,,so, unless you make some sort of spiritual connection with it when you play it, I'd look elsewhere
