Welcome to the forum!  Some Pics are always welcome, most use Photobucket, it's pretty straight forward.  Once you upload the pictures to photobucket you want to copy the IMG code then paste into the thread. Also post the Serial Number, which helps identify the year it was made.

Maybe Pike will come along and post the book description, I think the D13S had laminated quilted ash sides and back.  I have 2 D12S models that are the same design but laminated mahogony back and sides.  Both have solid spruce tops.  If it's in good condition and the neck is straight and level, then $100 is a good deal.  

If it's ash back and sides, they are generally brighter in sound versus a mahogony, which would be warmer.  A lot depends on what you're playing and really what you like.

In the end, if you like it and enjoy playing it, then it was worth every penny!

Guitars, I have a few - but then again, too few to mention

i agree if the neck is straight and action reasonable then 100 bucks is a fair deal.  i believe the d13s has solid spruce top and either mahogany or ovangkol back/sides (laminate) depending on what year it is.
What are the first 2 digits of the serial #?
