The worth of it depends on the make, model and year of the instrument. Ask them if they'll allow you to take pictures of it (they probably won't) to send to a luthier (you can find one here on BHO) to see about possible repairs.
Short of that, bring a friend who has been playing for some time to look at the instrument and give you advice.

Thanks for the info. Since then we've looked at it closer and determined that the neck was twisted pretty bad and did'nt want to spend 175 bucks on a wall hanger!
