GUEST,Albie Epiphone Texan anyone got one? (85* d) RE: Epiphone Texan anyone got one? 17 Apr 10

Since 1963, I have been carrying my 1958-9, ft-79 Texan serial #230 614 built in Kalamazoo, Mi It's in remarkable condition, all original. Recently took it to a guitar shop in Ft lauderdale to get restrung. When I took it from the case and handed it to the tech he just looked at it and said "Wow!" He handled it like it was fine crystal. Five years ago I was going to trade it in on a Martin but the shop owner wouldn't let me. He said he didn't have a Martin that played and sounded as good. Said my Texan was worth $4,000, maybe more. I have no way of knowing if he was correct. Any one have any idea what it might be worth?
