Does anybody know anything about Global? this appears to be a early to mid 70s probably would get sued today as it is a pretty good copy

Global Les Paul Copy's

I have read alot about global ls guitars. I have had one since 1977 and I love it and have had the wiring redone and changed out the pickups, it plays great alot of folks have said there junk put I disagree atleast with the one i have it looks just like a gibson and if I were to cover the headstock you would think is one as well. My was purchased out of a JC Penny's catalog. I also own around 20 electric guitars..Gibsons,Wasburns,BC Rich,Peavey,Yamaha and so on. They Were Made in Japan and in the late 70's were made to specs as the gibson LP with the same tappered headstock but by the 80's they didn't want sued so they changed the tapered of the headstock and did not have the same feel as a gibson. still looking for more info..they were sold in JC Penny and also by Sears all different models.

Global Les Paul

I bought a tobacco burst Global Les Paul from a Sears catalog when I was a teenager in the seventies for $69.00. Didn't know too much about guitars then but it was a beautiful thing to me. And my dad's guitar player friends with real Gibsons loved it. Someone else must have loved it too because they broke into our house and stole it. Always wanted to find another. No luck yet.

Re: Global Les Paul ripoff

I have a Les paul copy as well , I'm not sure of th age on it but it does seem to be a prety good guitart do you have any information on it or the company?? I've been looking for quite a while but allI seem to have found was this site and a nother one that like this where people were asking the same questions as over here,"who is global ??, when were these guitars made ect"

Re: Global Les Paul ripoff

I recently bought a global Les Paul Copy. From what I can gather, these guitars were sold in the sears catalog, I believe in the late 70's. The guy I bought it from thought it was a Epiphone.

I have done some tune up on it, but it is still not perfect. It's a beautiful guitar, but I don't know about the sound. I may need to put replacement pickups in.
