I recently bought my first electric guitar from a friend for $25. It was so cheap because it needed a lot of work, but I figured it would be a fun project. These are some photos of the work I did on it. Shout out to my brother Mark for helping me re-wire it.

There was 1 missing speed knob that I managed to find at a local guitar shop for $5 and I restrung it as well. Fun side project and it looks and sounds awesome for a$25 guitar.
