Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on (mrjamespollard@aol.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

Are you looking for a fretted or slide build?  Fretted guitars aren't simple things, many of us have significant investments in tooling just to do it right.  

Slide guitar's are an order of magnitude simpler, and with basic hand tools you can do it yourself.  If I add up the time it takes to buy and make fretboards, inlay, scarf necks and do all the work, a fretted guitar is probably 10-12 hours of work.  Making fretted guitars is still a time investment, but much much less, once you've made a few.  A few of us (including me) make kits, it wouldn't be much more effort to cut that box to fit to a kit and you'd have a slide guitar....   Do you have a few simple hand tools?  hand saw, screwdriver, etc ?
