View Full Version : Bargain Guitar for 50p

Just wanted to share a bit of a find with you.
My friend did a bootfair yesterday to sell a load of surplus junk. I went along for moral support and had a mooch round. I found a 1/2 size Bontempi kids guitar with built-in speaker for an amazing 50p. What a total bargain.
A new set of strings and it sounds very reasonable. The intonation is a bit off as you'd expect from a toy, but I'm not complaining for fifty pence!

Here it is next to a normal size guitar. CLICK FOR THE BIG PIC...

Ok - that thing is very cool. And the price can't be beat!

Wow that is a great deal. Yeah car boot sales can be really good for stuff like that. :worship:

I got a spanish guitar in a car boot sale. Although not quite near 50p it was about 15. I really need to get a proper one though 'cause the neck is too wide and action too high.

Not really the most comfortable to play but still is nice though.

Yes the action on it was shocking. I nearly sliced my hand off. But once I'd sorted that out it's fine.

The plan is to take it camping :rolleyes:
