Jose Lopez Bellido Flamenco Guitar

The Spanish luthier Jose Lopez Bellido of Granada, Spain is a well known guitar builder of classical and flamenco guitars, but his flamenco guitars are especially sought after because they do have a sought after flamenco sound. Many well known guitar player's play Jose's guitars, like Juan Habichuela who is a famous flamenco guitar player. He loves playing Jose's guitars. Jose also plays flamenco guitar, so he knows how a flamenco guitar should sound and how it should feel in the player's hands. This particular flamenco guitar is without exception. The sound is loud, which is easily brought to life with a light touch of the strings, yet it still has that wonderful lyrical sweet tone, which is great for solo playing. But still, this a flamenco guitar, as it has that woody growl sound throughout all registers, which provides that punch, and that in-your-face flamenco sound. Rasgueados are also easy to play and is very raspy, which is very desirable for accompanying dancers. In summary, this is a first class, professional flamenco guitar.

I have a 1969 Bandurria by Jose Lopez Belido and I want to re string it but cant get anyone to tell me what strings to put on. Its a 12 string,and maybe 12 frets.
Can someone HELP me?
I also would be curious to know what the value would be. Its in good/excellent condition and is in what seems to be the original case.
Thanks everyone!!
