    I have a '67 Guild CE100D sitting in my closet that I bought for about $100 when I was a teenager. The neck is in bad shape (warped, fretboard doesn't go all the way to the end, missing tuners, bad nut), and from looking at pictures of other Guilds I'd say the neck isn't even original--the headstock is different from others. The body is in good shape though, and all the electronics look to be original. I'm wondering if renecking is an option since there's not much money in the guitar to begin with. What's the price range for that sort of thing? Anyone play a renecked set-neck guitar?

    It's always an option. In minty shape that guitar would probably be in the $800-1200 range if that helps any.

    That's a smokin' guitar if you get it to play well again.
