to update value of this amazing guitar, indeed, they are now going for $2k to $2500.  Dylan has one.  They are almost impossible to find buit they do pop up now and then.  There are two on ebay 2/19/2013. The one with damage is $1500, the other is a little over 2k. The imported 24 only is a nice story but unconfirmed.  The takamine site has this guitar in archive @
