Pit, please help. I recently won a 1968 Les Paul copy made by Global guitar company. I havnt been able to find any useful info on it, but if anyone knows its value, it would be appreciated.

Not very Global..are they. Lawl.

But seriously. I couldn't find your location in your profile. I'm guessing it's probably just a starting company in your country? my guess.

Good luck and congrats.

nah. im from texas, but registered about 1.5 hrs ago. It sounds big & warm like an LP should, just cheaper.

Edit: thanks! & the guitar itself is from '68, not a 68model

I've seen the brand before. I'm pretty sure Global is one of the many "lawsuit" era guitars produced during the '60s to the '80s. Loads of smaller - usually foreign - companies started making copies of the well-known Gibson and Fender designs. Many of them sucked, but quite a few of them actually kick ass.

As far as value goes - not much. Not much at all. Unless it's, say, an Ibanez copy, they don't sell well. You won't get much more than a couple hundred or so, if that. However, it may in fact be a totally sweet guitar, so

EDIT: Also, this belongs in the Electric Guitar forum. Just FYI.

So you're the guy who bid on that $145 shipped Les Paul style guitar with a wraparound bridge? I was watching that too! Anyway, I can't imagine it would be worth any more than what you paid for it. $150 tops.

While I'm here, Could you please tell me how well it plays? I have a Global nylon string acoustic and although the previous owner practically ruined it by putting steel strings on it I can tell it is a cheap instrument, Seeing that the fretboard is painted and the frets aren't set in very well.
Always tin your strings.

Don't be afraid to be honest.

@ gargoyle-actually, i won it at a local metal show for being the most "hardcore and equally flamboyant mosher alive"
I got a buddy of mine to fix it up, and it sounds big and warm, just kinda cheap. When I put it through my boss acoustic sim pedal, though, it sounds AMAZING

it looks A LOT like that, but with more cherry sunburt tint/natural color to it. Its also littered with autographs and a drawing of a penis from a couple other metal bands around here. Too bad my band didnt play that night
