Guitar - General/Regent guitar

Actually Regent guitars were not just beginner guitars but spanned the lower to mid range and created some incredable instruments.  Regent guitars are Guyatone guitars that were renamed for distribution in Canada. Guyatone guitars ere made in the same factory as Ibanez eventually were merged into the Ibanez company.  These guitars are becoming more and more collectable as time goes on, specifically the electrics.

I have a Regent acoustic with the same label. Model P55. My Dad handed it down to me. He acquired it in the 60's and in Canada. I used to love playing that guitar. Handed it down to my nephew and found it one day in sisters attic with a 50 cent garage sale sticker on it. Pretty beat up. Flew it back to Florida with me and am trying to restore it. Can't find a replacement for one tuning peg.

What kind of old guitar do I have? Is it valuable? How old is it? Where was it made? Is it worth repairing? Advice on buying new or used guitars, accessories, etc. [Note: While I can give some general info on approximate values of types of instruments, neither I nor anyone else can do an "appraisal" without actually seeing and handling the instrument] I have almost 40 years` experience as a player and afficianado. If I don`t have an answer myself, I can often refer people to other authoritative sources.
