Need more info and pics if possible.   What condition is it in? 

Is this an original made in 1960 guitar or a reissue?  What does the label inside look like and what does it say?

Does it have dot inlays or block inlays on the fretboard?

Uploading pics; use an image hosting site and paste links from there into your posts. Imgur, Postimage and you can even do it from Fbk I believe.

Good luck!

I don't know what country you are in, but this should be worth a substantial amount of money anywhere.

Here is one for sale in Switzerland - the price is a bit high!

Even if the asking price on this is double what it should be, well.....

Get an appraisal/valuation.  This will cost money but will be well worth it.

If you are in USA contact Norman's Rare Guitars

https://www.normansrareguitars.com/

Or Gruhn Guitars

https://guitars.com/

Or Archtop.com  (your guitar is strictly speaking not an archtop but I'm sure that wouldn't matter)

https://www.archtop.com/

Best wishes.

Gruhn Guitars is one of the most respected names in the business, and does appraisals (for a fee) if you send detailed photos.  Remember that their appraisal will reflect what they would sell the instrument for if it were for sale in their store.

Irish Girl,

I think it may be worth your while e-mailing this chap and asking his opinion:  http://www.es-335.org/  (He knows a lot about those guitars) and yes as Jdgm has already pointed out this guitar is worth a lot of money.

A dealer who specializes in early Gibson ES335/345/355 is OK Guitars in Connecticut USA.  (Oh I see he's already been mentioned)

I've bought from him. Very knowledgeable.
