    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.

    Very cool! Is it 34" scale? Those frets look jumbo.

    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!
