I built a bass once and a couple of guitars, mostly as I wanted a specific shaped body. The bass looked cool, it was shaped like an SG pointy end at both ends of the body and was purple. It costs more to make a guitar than to buy one, I recently looked into making a guitar again but it started to get expensive. There is a few good shops around, I recommend chguitars.co.UK. My advice is, if you are wanting to make your own guitar, cut your own body from ply wood and make it look insane.
