Then I am very excited for this, seeing as how only about 1 out of 10 builds I look at are people that realize building your own guitar is expensive and shouldn't be done "on a budget".

One thing I know you won't be able to get for 500 dollars is the computer systems and software. A CNC router doesn't just know what to do, and can only make a piece as good as you are at making a 3D...

Hey don't doubt yourself, I sat and looked at builds for years before I tried it all out. The initial investment is impressive, but I wouldn't give it upnfor anything.
