Thomas Leiber, Matt Moriarity, Phiga, Ressurection Guitars, Scott Walker, A guy named "Soft Machine" on here makes some too. Lots of price points and qualities to consider. To call any of them better than another would be an insult to these people that are all expert luthiers. All of the above will result in a fantastic instrument, you may wanna visit their sites and see what you like or don't like. If you are looking to do it as cheap as possible, building one by yourself from Warmoth is a good idea.
As for amps, I took my jerry axe into my local guitar store and played the Hot rod deluxe III and LOVE it. very versatile. Has a preamp out tap already, full tone stack and cool clipping options Pure fender cleans... $699 for a tube combo like this is an awesome price. I am thinking about trading my twin in for it.
