Bob Rigaud graduated from the Roberto-Venn School in Phoenix and later worked as an instructor there. He moved to Greensboro, NC in 1979, where he worked as a repairman at a local music store. At this time he began making resophonic guitars (with sound-posts) in his home workshop, where he also made cutaway nylon stringed guitars and custom carved electric guitars. One of these (Sculptar) was featured in Guitar Player magazine (March 1985).  Bob continued to grow his career as he built acoustic guitars and specialized in the repair and restoration of vintage guitars. Circa 2019 he was devoted to the design and development of custom acoustic guitars.
