Maybe we need to team up. I love building and setup but hate guitar paint/finish work....

In the overall scheme of things - guitar building is fairly straight forward wood work so far as things go... Except for the part about very thin wood and putting guitar strings on it at the end.... There are no weird, complicated joints.... It's basically all butt and lap joints... You just have to do it right so it doesn't fall apart and everything lines up where it's supposed to.... The final part separates furniture from instrument....

For folks who finish a guitar build - the usual time is about a year.. It's not your day job and so it has to share hobby time with the rest of your hobbies... Like fishing and sitting on the couch with the wife....

99% of people who dream about it never take the 1st step beyond dreaming...
75% of people who buy a kit never start...
90% of people who start never finish.

But...

90% of people who actually build a guitar will build at least 1 more. Most get hooked... It's addictive.... Especially because each one is better than the last...
