I also have a Global guitar that my grandfather used to own. it isn't worth much money wise but it means alot to me emotionally. I plan on using it as a starter guitar and keeping it until i die.  Did you not like your grandfather or something? id keep the guitar for sentimental value.

I also have a Global brand guitar. According to my mom the guitar is about 31 years old (1978). My grandparents paid $40 for it. I've had some interests, but no takers. The best I got was $40 but they decided not to buy it anyways. I tried a pawn shop but they have their electric guitars priced for $150 and it seems no one is really buying them. They only offered $10. So I'm trying again, Craigslist.org. Hope my little story is helpful to any readers out there.

What kind of old guitar do I have? Is it valuable? How old is it? Where was it made? Is it worth repairing? Advice on buying new or used guitars, accessories, etc. [Note: While I can give some general info on approximate values of types of instruments, neither I nor anyone else can do an "appraisal" without actually seeing and handling the instrument] I have almost 40 years` experience as a player and afficianado. If I don`t have an answer myself, I can often refer people to other authoritative sources.
