    This is a one of a kind David Opatik- http://www.opatikguitars.com

    Price drop to $1100.00 shipped to the lower 48!!!!!!!

    Comes with a nice gator gigbag

    Maple body
    Birdseye Maple top
    Maple / Walnut neck , 34″ scale
    Ebony fretboard
    DiMarzio pickups
    Passive – VVT
    bound body top and neck
    Neckthrough construction- 5 piece

    Weighs about 9.5 lbs and balances nicely. The craftmanship is evident as soon as you pick this bass up. This was a bass I thought I would keep the rest of my life, but i need money at the moment. The Body, Neck and headstock are bound and the work is impeccable. Now, this bass sounds better than any other jazz bass I have played and I am not kidding, there is something special going on here and the neck is super fast.

    Wow. Dave Meros of Spocks Beard had (still has?) a Franken Rick similar this. It sounds brilliant!

    Is this the same bass that was on the Luthiers Access Group site a while back? I was quite intrigued by it. Bump for a great looking bass!
