    So today I scored a Hondo Acustic Guitar from school. It's missing the Nut, Strings and bridge pegs. Then it's tuning pegs are fucked, bent on an angle, dent's in the body as well.

    I'm going to fix it up and it should only cost about $50-100. As compared to a new full price guitar. pretty sweet really if you ask me.

    Any way I would like some help on what parts to get for it. I have this spretty much but missing that stuff and different tuning pegs.



    so any help on what new parts to get would be great. Thanks.

    It's funny because the price of the school guitars are probably about $50-$100 as well.

    At my old school the guitar class had fenders.

    My Mexi-Jazz is of superb quality if you ask me, sure it's not American made but still, on a $400 budget you can't beat the price at all.

    For me, I just pick the cheapest acoustic available that is playable.

    Electrics are where I spend time shopping.

    :D

    Tuning pegs, 30 dollars.

    Strings, 5 dollars.

    Headnut should be around 8 dollars.

    Not sure what bridge pegs are, but I'm sure they can't cost must.

    Edited:

    Japanese guitars are good. You do realize Japanese manufacturers generally have a good name?
