1975 Guild Starfire

My buddy needs money for an engagement ring and offered to sell his 1975 Guild Starfire to me for $500.

A) What would I be able to flip this for?

and

B) What's demand for these like?

Depending on condition, 1800+. This is one of the best regarded semi-hollow of that era, so buyers are out there, but vintage semi-hollows attract the collector market and they usually know what they want and are very choosy. You won't be able to flip this as easy as a vintage telecaster.

It's definitely worth $500, especially if it has no issues. It will not be as valuable as an older one of course. Keep in mind that you see mid 60s ones around for $1500 or so all of the time. It's worth what someone will pay or it. You might do better in a trade situation at a shop, but be careful.
