Where, when, how much is it worth now.

Recommended Posts

 

I have an epiphone les Paul.  Bought it 20 years ago  
How can I tell how much it is worth if I sell. Where it was made and where. It is sparkly blue 

Serial number 17030808.

when I type that serial number into a search engine it comes back it was made a couple of years ago!

I'm thinking that's the letter "I" not the number 1 at the start of the serial number.  That means "Your guitar was made at the Saein Plant, Korea, on March, 1987, 1997 or 2007, Production Number: 808."  So probably 1997.  If it's an LP Standard, it's probably worth around $400-500 max.

You can get a good idea how much a guitar is worth by checking ebay completed listings, especially "sold listings."

Saein 1997 for sure.  The average resale price for a typical LP Standard of that age is around 250 - 350 USD.
