The precision required in making solid body electric guitars and basses is a perfect fit for a CNC. I choose this late in the game not to make that investment. What I have used, with acceptable success, is a Marlin Router Duplicator. Beautifully built machine.

And it’s actually fun to make patterns, set it up and replicate, replicate, replicate.

And if I ever need to grind the rails of my full size railroad track, I know where to buy the machine to do the job!
