Default Restoration

I received a bamboo rod last night that had been tucked away in my late grandfather's closet. The label was worn almost completely off, but from the reel seat I was able to determine this 8'6" 3 piece rod is a Montague Flash from around the 40s. I know this rod was an economy model and not sought after but I would like to restore this rod to make it fishable. The cork is in decent shape. The reel seat is ok. The varnish seems ok. It's missing two guides and one of the two tips is bent.i've also heard that this rod needs a few more guides to make it a better fishing rod. I've replaced a guide on a casting rod before but I haven't had a lot of practice. What would I be looking at trying to do this myself vs sending this to someone else to restore? Thanks.
