Baldwin bought ODE in '66...all of them are great! I play Model 33 '63 and '64 long neck ODEs. Cathy Barton, r.i.p., played one like you're describing her entire career.

Hmm...what model is it? Look on the inside of the pot, might be embossed 2SR? Then you can look up sold items on here, reverb, or heavebay US and judge for yourself. Some other factors are d-tuners, 5th string capo, case...

I was looking at a 2SR a few years back and asked one of the resident experts (I can't remember who now). Asking price was quite a bit less and based on the expert''s advice I passed. Like Mark said, look on reverb and ebay (one sold not too long ago on Canada's ebay) to find what people are asking. That said, I see you are in Ireland and ODE's of any kind are probably pretty rare, so you may need to pay a bit more than we would in the US. There is an ODE group here on the HO, and you might ask your questions there.
