Default Guitar Build

Hi, This is my first post here so Hello to all. I built a few acoustic guitars last year and found it extremely time consuming but enjoyable at the same time. I was just wondering what the options are to buy a reasonably priced cnc machine that would save me some time on solid bodies and necks as i'm thinking about going into electrics instead of acoustics for a while. I saw a gadget called radarcarve online and it looks interesting but its not a proper cnc machine although it suited my budget. Any info would be appreciated.
Regards
Rusty

Welcome to the forum, Rusty.

We have a couple of guitar builders at our Men's Shed. They seem to enjoy the whole process.
