    I have a 4 string BO on order with Rob which is due sometime in late Oct/early Nov. Alder w/buckeye top, macassar ebony board, 18v pre, etc. It's going to be a nice bass, and one I've been looking forward to getting. I ordered it through Bob and Bernie over at Bass Palace. They were beyond excellent to deal with.
    I read not too long ago on a thread about Rob not being very friendly on the phone. I've had nothing but great conversations with him about basses, construction, other luthiers, etc. He's always been able and willing to talk on the phone, and always was interested in working out any custom options I had requested. Have others out there also had similarly good experiences with him? He certainly builds a great bass.

    I had a long phone conversation with him. He's opionated.. and so am I. I had no problems with him, in fact it gave me an insight into why he does what he does. I love his basses.
