Hello, this is my first post here, I searched out an Ibanez/Greco Collectors forum, and this seems like the place to be! I have an early Greco Flying-V, and was considering selling it. It is in good condition, but I can't seem to find a blue book value on it. If anyone has any suggestions or resources that could help out my quest it would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pictures of the guitar, the previous owner had the bridge pickup replaced with an dimarzio humbucker; This is the only thing I know it is not original to the guitar, except for the case. Thanks.

I've seen excellent condition Ibanez/Greco Vs like this go for $600 to $1000 U.S. Doesn't seem to matter which name is on the headstock. Unfortunately, it looks like whoever did a nut replacement also managed to split the fingerboard from the neck. This kind of damage will reduce its value considerably. These '58 copies, although very well made, are a bit on the fragile side. Also, the bridge pickup and both pickup mounting rings have been replaced. I can't give an accurate assessment of the value, but maybe $350 to $400 (just guessing).
