I'm looking for a 70's korina (ash) Flying V. What should I expect to have to pay for one in clean all original condition?

Hi Paul!
I think you might consider yourself lucky if you find one in "clean and original condition" (with OHSC) between 850 and 1000 US dollar. If you want the "real" copy of the G****n '58 V, you should be looking for the very first V's Ibanez built in 1974 (they don't have a serial number) because only the very first badges had the correct pickguard-shape (going under the treble post of the bridge) while the later ones have the pickguard cut around the treble post. But than again: no ("korina") Ibanez V has the output jack in the right place, so what's "a correct copy"? Okay, let's call it "as close as Ibanez got to the original".
