My neighbor gave me a guitar that he had packed away that he no longer wanted. It was a 1965 hagstrom III electric guitar. It came with a certificate of authenticity, and it stated that it was number 87 of 300 made in that style / color. It is all original, and everything is in tip top shape, except for a few nicks and scratches on the finish. No bowing at all, extremely low action, three single coil pickups. I just wonder what the thing is worth? any chance you guys might know?

Yeah, its smilar but not similar, totally different finish, its like varnished light wood, it has several switches, and not as hard rounded edges as that one

but heres where i'm puzzled. I took it to 3 guitar shops and told them I knew nothing of it and they all offered me large sums of money, the lowest was 900 dollars, and the highest was 2,000 dollars. They acted as they were common, but i feel as if i was being snaked

Also, on ebay last week there was one with a busted neck and refinished body for 1000.

So i have no idea what to think

I'm sure you could have it appraised. Sounds like you may have something very rare if people are willing to take it off your hands that quickly.
