Gibson Mahogany Flying V 1970?

Recommended Posts

In going through our store room we came across what appears to be a early 70s mahogany Flying V. Unfortunately, it appears to have been  stripped and refinished (to the point that the serial number is illegible) with thick clear coat. Everything else about it appears correct and aside from the refinish the overall condition is very good. 

According to the Vintage Guitar Price Guide in original finish, at the low end of excellent, it would be worth $14,000. I'm just wondering how much a refinish devalues a guitar like this.

Also, is it worth pulling the pickguard? Is there likely be anything in the cavity that might provide useful info?

And, finally, are there any sites that provide comprehensive info on Flying Vs?
