Here's #P0610007 --
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Washburn-HB-155-Electric-Hollowbody-Guitar-/291127509246?pt=Guitar&hash=item43c88d40fe&nma=true&si=qa8ufKVNMjHySXUS4LUz5PU9PO8%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
It went out for $345 + $52.41.

What it's "worth" depends on a whole bunch of factors. For starters, I happen to like Washburn in general, but few of their models carry any "big name" cachet -- great guitars, but not hot with collectors (amateur or otherwise). You stand to get somewhere $200 - $500.

If it were presented to me, I might consider offering $350, but in all likelihood it'd take me 1-2 years to unload it, for $500 if I was lucky AND did my homework.

Should you want firmer numbers, you'll need to get in touch with a reputable dealer of quality guitars, either in person or online. There are $50 written appraisals that are suitable for high-end instruments (for insurance, or taking out a bank loan, etc.). Some reputable online sources can cost $25 or less, depending on how much documentation you expect -- even free if you just want a credible guess at the specific value of your guitar. Some sources:
