Scott, aka., "Dr. Bond" is a perfectionist in terms of quality and craftsmanship. To say that I am "Particular" is quite the understatement; therefore, this works for me. I will continue to recommend Fat Cat to anyone with a pulse, and a desire to purchase an extraordinary guitar, at a fair price.  Mark V., Antioch, IL

Everything on this guitar had to be custom cut by hand and honestly, the guitar came out flawless. I have received a ton of compliments on how the guitar looks and plays. Brian M., Lake in the Hills, IL

I was in the market for a new 7-string electric guitar. I knew through the grapevine that Scott did really good work so I got in touch with him and right from the get go he was prompt and professional with me. [He] did an amazing job at identifying what I wanted out of my custom guitar and worked with me every step of the way to get exactly what I wanted while staying with in my budget (which was not huge I am a musician).  Benjamin N., Bloomingdale, IL

The guitar sounds incredible, and we've used it throughout the recording of our debut album.  Every guitarist who picks it up, asks me, who built this?   Danny M., Chicago

The playability, the look and the attention to detail ranks Scott's custom axes right up there on a par with ANYTHING being built today!!   Jeff P., Poplar Grove, IL

Somehow, Scott has figured out how to put a musical soul into the guitars he builds.  Mike G., Algonquin, IL
