It's in beautiful condition by the looks of it.

As a completely unsubstatiated guess, I'd say anywhere from $5-15k.

You sure it's a 225? All the 225's I've seen online are single cutaway guitars.
The ES-125's look just like that though.

I think a lot of these guesses about it's value are way too high. It's not
just the age that pumps up the value, but wheter or not the guitar is
partcularly rare or sought after by collectors.

A thread at a Les Paul forum was saying $1500-$2500 for a 1958 ES 225, and
there's a 1959 on E-bay for $2300.
I used to be a necropheliac who was into sadomasochistic bestiality...

dead horse.

It's not worth much, maybe <$1,000. Depends on who you sell it to, and how bad they want it.

It's not worth much in the first place, and any changes he does to make the guitar better playability wise will be worth it because he's not selling it. Eventually when he DOES sell, when the time comes, a refurbished '58 will be worth a lot more, if done properly.

Um, just because a guitar is old and also happens to be a Gibson, doesn't mean
it's worth much. Some of you guys see an old Gibson and immediately think it must
be worth a fortune. That's the exception rather than the rule.

This one would be doing quite well around the $1000 mark unless it was exceptionally
sought after -- just a guess. Basically figure a Gibson will hold its value minus a bit when you adjust for inflation -- the cost of that guitar in 58 would seem dirt cheap
today.
