Elgin man custom makes amazing guitars with Chicago flare

Robby Bakes stumbled into the guitar world 30 years ago while working as a machinist and he’s never turned back.

His first piece, a tribute sculpture to Jimmie Hendrick, has led to decades of work restoring and building musical art.

Prices for his labor intensive one of a kind pieces range from $1500 – $10,000 and beyond.   He says his future work will offer up some on the less expensive side for everyone to enjoy.
