Hey team.
I’m very new here but have been building a few guitars recently.
there is one body that has caught my interest from Acacia Guitars called the Cronus (they literally have to weirdest names). I was wondering if anyone would be able to tackle making a body and maybe neck like this?
this might be a tall ask, but appreciate anyone who can point me in the right direction.
thank you!

I would encourage you to do the right thing and buy the guitar directly from Acacia.

For heaven’s sake, you don’t need a CNC for that! Cutting out a body shape on a bandsaw, or even a jigsaw, is the absolute minimum required in making a guitar.

If you are not interested in making guitars, let me disabuse you of the idea that you can make a one-off guitar for less than buying it outright. If you can’t buy that guitar, I can guarantee that trying to make it yourself, especially if you aren’t interested in being a luthier, is not going to be a viable path.

Doesn’t make it right. It’s lazy.
