Please help with info about a Samick Acoustic Electric Guitar SWTA 217 CE. The front of this thin body, acoustic/electric guitar is (my best description) inlayed in a "zebra" or "camouflage" pattern with 3 different types of wood on the entire front of the guitar. It has both a large and a small plug-in hole on the very bottom (for an amp I guess?). After hours on the internet, still haven't seen anything like it. We can't even find the model # on the internet. My daughter purchased this used. Can't find ANY info on this. We really want to learn more our it - how old it is, value, original cost,is it a custom guitar, etc. It doesn't seem to be a standard model. It's a nice guitar and we are curious as heck about it. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Below are the links for 3 photos of it. Samick Company is no help - can't even get through to them. Thanks in advance for your help.

WOW is that is just super-nice. That is an amazing top, definately hang on to it. If the bottom has 2 inputs, a 1/4" and one with 3 pins, the 3-pin jack is called an XLR input, the same thats used on mics. If you take a mic cord, you can plug it directly into your PA or mixer, instead of having to mic it or plug into an amp. It sounds better, too.

Pretty sweet bit of kit!

I have one just like it, bought it new at a music store in Florida in 1996 for $500 even.
Favorite acoustic ever! It appears we are the only two people in the world with one.
I also own the same model Samick. I saw it on ebay about three years ago and had to have it. I replaced the nut and bridge with bone and also replaced the bridge pins and end pin with ones made of bone with abalone inlay. It's a very easy playing guitar and it's definitely different.
