I have been searching online and locally for some info on my 12 string. It's an Ibanez York bought in 1975. I have played it maybe 10 times since I have had it, kept in a hardshell case and it's still in brand new condition. The model# is 646. What I can see of the serial# (which is etched on the inside up by the neck) reads 75__715
The blank is half a number, could be a 3,5 or an 8. I am trying to get a value on it, one of the guitar dealers here in town told me is a high quality instrument, made with solid mahogany looks to be on the high end. Can you help me?

Here's a scan of the 1975 catalog that shows the model 646:
Here's the only specs I could find and list price (not sure what year the price is from):
#646 D size,12 string, fine grain Spruce top, Rosewood back and sides US$199.00.
The spruce top is most likely laminated, not solid.
As far as current pricing, here's a summary of ebay auctions, as of 12/04:
|Mod No.||Desc.||Avg. Cond.||Sales||Hi||Low||Avg.||Avg. 4/04||Avg. 12/04 |
Hope this helps.
