I was in the Nashville Hardrock Cafe a couple years ago and they definitely had some Petra stuff in it: Bob's guitar from Beat the System, Ronny Cates' bass, a cymbal signed by Louie Weaver, and John Lawry's hand held keyboard.

I know that this is a "zombie" thread, but Bob is still building custom guitars on a one-off basis. He uses parts from Warmoth, primarily - nothing wrong with that, since he uses Warmoth parts to build his own personal guitars as well. He is currently building one for me, which should be ready in a couple of months.

I have always wondered to what extent he made the guitars by parts he bought elsewhere. I would have no problem buying something he build using parts from Warmoth. There is a lot more to building a guitar than putting the parts together. Getting it setup correctly is also an interesting and important part.

What style is he building for you? Strat, LP, etc.?

How much is he charging now? (If you don't mind me asking...)

Bob makes good guitars, as there is more to it than just the parts. I owned one of his tele-style, and really liked it.
I keep this one because... well, because:
It was #6 of the 7 J&H guitars he made, and he has since sold the one he kept for himself.
