This is a 2014 Custom 58 for $US225. A new '22 Custom is $US629.95 RRP. So this board is running at 36% of the new price.
This board has been a beaten around a little and looks like it hasn't been kept in a board bag. The top sheet has a fair few scratches and edge chips. In the end a board is really worth how much someone pays for it whilst also priced alongside the cost of rentals. The Custom is a brilliant AM full cambered moderately stiff board.

I recently grabbed a new delivered '22 Custom on the EOS sales down here in Australia for $US398 thanks to Covid shutting down the Mountains for most of Winter.

If the base is okay as from the pics it looks reasonable. You can polish up top sheet and it might hide a few of the scratches however I'm not that knowledgeable with US 2nd hand prices. I worked it out and it's $Au225 so that's a pretty good price for a 2nd hand '14 Custom.

I wouldn't pay more than half of his asking price. Sorry but it aint worth more than 125. You have a ton of other board to choose from just by looking a Facebook marketplace or buy and sell groups.
Links?

At $US175 he's paying 27% off the full RRP @'22 Custom for a reasonable condition used '14.
Everyone is after a good deal but you're suggesting $US125 (20%).

In Australia it's $Au180 to hire a board/bindings for 5 days peak Winter. He already has the bindings so it's a pretty fair deal. He will hardly lose anything on the outlay of this board even after a few years riding.

I bought a first year Skeleton Key ridden one day for 1500kr/$170 or a older buy brand new Sleazy Rider of eBay for the same amount.
There is always deals to be made.
For the astute there is always a chance in tripping onto a great deal. I while ago I grabbed 2 pairs of Volkl skis, poles, boots for $Au120. I did a full clean/service/wax on them and sold them for over $Au1200. I knew it was a good buy. I've done this with numerous other boards and ski as well but in the end he's getting a 7 yr old Custom which is a upper end board in okay condition. I perused a few US snowboard outlets and they are renting out at around $US40-50 a day for a board/bindings so 5 days hire would pay for this board.
