Umm...that IS therapy...
Cut the pickup holes on the template and sanded the body down to within 32nd of the line. Router table is next.
No therapist needed. Now, an assistant might not be a bad idea. You're a little far for me unfortunately.
I have two builds running, last one it's my #28 and I don't play guitar or bass!! Not even one chord!!! But building it's my therapy, so... Everything it's OK
I have friend that is a retired physician, he is a prolific builder of electric and acoustic, and mandolins. He builds beautiful guitars with very ornate inlays. Does not play a lick of guitar. Knows the fretboard and all the notes, but does not play. Has over 50 guitars he built on display in his giant shop man cave.
The 5 current therapeutic devices:
I'm somewhat following in your footsteps...keyboard player with only rudimentary guitar and bass skills at this point and surgery on my left wrist a few years ago makes it difficult for me to do much. So I'm in it for the build rather than the play!
I usually start the "next" one when I start the finish on the current one, as I do those jobs in different shops. For me personally, I would only work on more than one at a time if it was a run of very similar guitars, so that I could "assembly line" a few operations. I did that once with a run of 5 Teles and it worked out ok, but I'm not very keen on doing it again. I much prefer to focus my concentration on one project and try to eliminate the possibility of errors. The operative word there, being "try".
All you wood guys have mad skills that I could never emulate (though I can carve a Pinewood Derby car ), so my therapy is a little different:
I built these in the last 6 -8 months, with another half dozen strewn around my bench area, another half dozen in my pedal drawers, plus 3 tube amps and another in progress...hello my name is Zippo and I'm an addict...
