So a friend on myspace posted a bulletin saying that he couldn't really pay his bills and had to sell some stuff and mentioned a "1972 Epiphone 12-string Acoustic Electric" for $400 or best offer. Any ideas how much this is worth? If you guys don't know, could you find out if you had the serial number? Thanks.

If it's in good condition without any problems, $400 is a good price as long as it has a solid top which it should have. If it's all solid wood it's a bargain!

cool, thats helpful, thanks man. by solid top you mean not laminated right?

Yep. You can check that out by looking at the edge of the sound-hole at a low angle of side view. You should see solid wood not 2 or 3 layers. For solid wood back it should have a join down the back in the middle [plywood doesn't need a join].

just because the guitar was joint in the back, that doesnt mean its made from solid wood. my epiphone ej200ce has this, and its said to be laminate all around...

Fake joins at the back is a relitively new gimmick with plywood, Is your guitar a 1972 ?

Nope, you can buy an epiphone ej200ce band new for around $400. Solid wood was a lot more plentiful and cheap back in 72'. But they wern't cheap guitars never the less.
