    According to this sentence, you bought the guitar in the first place - the defining relative clause (after that) specifies the guitar that you wrecked.

    I imagine that you mean that you had to buy a new one?

    Also, increments are rises e.g. 5% increments.

    Try this :

    I have wrecked my brother's guitar and my mother is making me pay for a new one in instalments.

    I hope this helps!
