shop says 1 11/16, I think it must be a tad less, when did they move to less than 1 11/16th? Also, this guitar is far from pristine, 2 top cracks, user wear....what would be the relative value of this one, best guess, is $1100 too high?

A low end small body model with serious wear and damage? $1100 sounds way high. In really good condition I would expect something in the $750 to $800 range and in perfect almost mint condition maybe something in the $1000 to $1100 range. Without seeing how much wear and damage (which would require a close inspection of not only the outside but also the inside), I would think something around the $400 or less if the damage is greater than described. Two significant cracks will cost a couple of hundred to repair, then you would need to determine if the neck needed work and if the internal bracing was in good shape, etc. Each repair would cost a fair amount and reduce the selling price to cover the repair cost to get it into full playing condition. And a fully repaired guitar is not going to sell for the same price as a never repaired top condition guitar. You should take it to your local luthier and find out just how much damage there is and what would it cost to repair to get a good sense of whether it is worth repairing and selling, or simply selling as a repair project for a reduced price.
