I am interested in selling a 1960's Silvertone tenor guitar. Would there be an interest here, enough to warrant listing it in the the classifieds? If so, what would be an equitable selling price? I purchased it from Rual Yarbrough in the 1988-1989 time frame, hoping to get my children interested when they were young.
It seems the Mandolin Cafe and Acoustic Guitar Forum are the two leading discussion forums. I am not a member of either.
The item shows its age, is structurally sound, pleasing to the eye, and sounds good. I am in the process of installing new, D'Addario EJ66 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Tenor Guitar Strings, Light Gage: 32W, 22W, 14, 10.
Thank you in advance for any help, advice, or direction you can provide.
Unless a change in the market has occurred that I am not aware of, perhaps +/-$300 or a little more if it's solid and it can be set up with reasonable action. I see a fairly similar Harmony Sovereign in pretty good shape for $375 on reverb.
I could be wrong about this if the market has changed. It wouldn't hurt to hear from a few others on this one.

I know nothing about tenor banjos, let alone guitars. But I can use search functions.
It looks like similar vintage/quality instruments sell on Ebay for $100- $200.
This looks like the same model that went for $100
Some other points of reference:
This is a KAY made guitar. The two upholstery screws on the bridge and the slot head screws holding on the otherwise loose pickguard are the clues. The question I always have with old acoustic guitars is whether they need a neck set. I can rarely tell from the photos. Instruments this age are more likely than not to need a neck set.
