bopat “T”- Survivor


I survived a heart attack in 2022 and this guitar is a celebration of being able to spend a few more years with my family! God is at the center of everything we do and I’m more grateful today to have the time I have. As you can see,  I’ve used a bit of purple “heart” wood for obvious reasons :). The top is highly figured Myrtlewood, the back is a very nice piece of Sapele and the center of the body is African Mahogany. A custom laser cut heart & cross emblem is on the custom Purple Heart magnetic truss rod cover and a very special verse is lasered into the Purple Heart magnetic control cover. The pickups are custom handwound from Dawgtown pickups and we’re using a CRL 5 position switch along with a master volume and master tone control. We’ve used a figured piece of Honduran Mahogany for the 7 piece neck with strips of Purple Heart, Wenge and Maple.  The fretboard is Pau Ferro and the nickel frets are med/med. We include straplocks and a bopat/gator case. Shipping is additional if required.


We love to personalize your guitar. Here is an example of what we can do to make the guitar tell your story. In this case it was surviving a heart attack and the opportunity to continue on. This guitar will always be a reminder of the value of life 🙂
The Myrtlewood top on the Survivor is absolutly georgous! The slab we took this from came out of Northwest Timber in Oregon. Patti and I visited their shop a couple of years ago. Oh my – I believe It was a taste of what heaven will be like!!

Part of the bopat brand are our inlayed pickup surrounds. We can do these in any type of wood. They lay flush with the top of the guitar and look very cool!
