I have an electric guitar Seville, the model is S-180ME. I don't found information about this in the web. If you know something about this guitar, could you help me?

ANSWER: Hey Omar,
Thanks for writing! Seville is actually made by Hondo in Korea. Their acoustic guitars. such as the S-13, were handmade meaning they were well made. You will not find out much online because Hondo and Seville didn't support their instrument's with any kind of customer service or webpages. I would like to see a picture of your guitar or know a bit more about it. Can you send me a photograph or describe what the body looks like (does is look like a Gibson Les Paul or Fender Stratocaster)? Let me now and I'll get you some decent information. Write back...Johnny
Thanks for writing back with a photograph! This looks like a mid 1980s Seville. Seville primarily makes classical guitars but started making electrics to tap into the market share. This was one of their better made electrics. It is a weird design because it uses a Fender Telecaster electronics system with a Gibson styled pickup configuration. You don't see many of these around so it has some value. I would say it is roughly worth around $500 to $650 in today's used guitar market because of it's rarity. Is it a set (glued) neck or a bolt on neck? Let me know because this affects the value. Stay in touch...Johnny
I can answer questions regarding playing, guitar models, guitar construction, amplifiers, effects, starting a band, recording and touring. As the Guitarist and singer for No Alternative I have recorded a number of albums, singles and CDs as well as extensive touring. I can also answer questions about starting a band and recording.
I have been a guitar player for 26 years. I play and tour with No Alternative. With a number of CDs out there are also 14 bands that have recorded my songs.
