Now it`s an 18 years old bass, made in Korea in 94, April, and all exept strings and battery is ORIGINAL! This thing is built like a tank! Neck is quite fat, but profile is easy to play on, it feels more like a Stingray`s neck. All I`ve done is a fretwork, done by my local luthier, and action is VERY low without noticible fret buzzing. Pickup and preamp is amazing piece of engineering! I can trail the sound of MM or JB easly, and it`ll be even more versatile thanks to 3 band boost/cut preamp! Massive bridge have strung-through-the-body option and it have a massive attack and one of the longest sustain I`ve ever seen on a bass guitar! I`d never sell this thing! For it`s price, it`s just a beast! You can`t go wrong with this instrument for sure!
You can summon almost every sound you might want with this bass. With the triple-coil, you can make it sound like a Fender, a Rickenbacker, a Stingray and other basses. The neck is more comfortable than I was expecting. Several reviewers mention the neck being big. Well, it is exactly as wide as a Fender Precision neck but it feels, in my hands, like the neck is slimmer. I also own a Fender Precision and the Fender's baseball bat neck feels more awkward since I have the ATK. I have the red sparkle model and it is a beauty! This bass is definitely a keeper.
The Ibanez ATK300 is a sweet bass! I was looking for a bass that gave a Fender like sound but, didn't cost like a Fender. And this bass is that. This bass delivers a nice sound but doesn't break the bank.
This thing has almost exactly got that signature Fender tone without buying one. This thing is solid, like a brick, with great tone and feel. The action is really low, not so low that it's got fret buzz, but great for funk, and slap. The 3 way switch is awsome for switching tones during a sone, or just getting the tone just right. The 3 band eq is good, but the bass and middle controls are a little touchy. Other than that, the pickup placement is good for playing all styles. It comes with coated strings for a notice, and it has a REALLY wide neck, that is fast, and grippy so you don't slip. It's just awsome.
I bought this bass partially because of the reviews I read online - for some reason it?s impossible to find in retail shops(in NYC).Simply put - it?s blown me away. The low price tag almost discouraged me but I?m glad it didn?t.The neck is huge and the body is heavy, but if you?re a big person like me, you may prefer that to all these tiny jelly-bean style basses that are out there today.The sound and playability are very similar to the Stingray but I actually prefer the look and feel. (Not to mention I could buy four of these for the price of a new Stingray).Trust me - this bass is excellent at any price.
I was a little hesitant to buy this bass because i'd never played one or even seen one around here. I did meticulous research on the bass and all signs pointed me to buy it. I knew this bass was going to be versatile but it exceeded my expectations. Its all thanks to the pickup switch and the eq. i can easily dial in MM, Jazz, & even decent P sounds. it has loads of sustain. the neck is comfortable to me. it feels like a MM neck. i expected it to weigh a ton but mine is actually pretty light. its lighter than my Jazz bass. its just a very well made bass. if you are considering buying one, DO IT! you will not regret it!
Having owned or still owing higher end USA basses (Fender Jazz, Precision, Lakland, MusicMan), I wanted to find myself a cheap "beater" that I could take to gigs and not worry about having it be damaged or stolen. Based on all the positive reviews from others, I figured I couldn't go wrong. As soon as I picked up this thing and played the first note- unplugged, I knew I was getting more than a cheap bass here. When I plugged it in---WOW!!!!!!!!! Serious tone here, piano like clarity and beautiful overtones. This is Ibanez's "ENTRY" level?? Holy you-know-what! It was so easy to dial in the desired tone. And, it came equipped with a beautiful set of ELIXIR roundwounds. There's anothers thirty bucks I won't have to shell out for a while. Not what I expected for a "Made in Indonesia" product. My bandmates asked me to keep this one on instead of my MusicMan Bongo for the practice. My only beef (whiny little me!) is that the neck is super chunky. I got used to it in a couple of hours but if you have small hands, you better think about it first. Maybe that fatness adds to the tone's fatness. There's a 3 way switch that allows you to add brightness or attack (phasing, I believe). Useful as all heck. I leave it in the bright position and it has a nice "Marcus Miller" fat sound right there. So far, it shuts down my P and J basses and gives the MusicMan (at 5 times the cost) the shivers. I don't care that it was so cheap- I'll never consider this my "beater". YOU WON'T GO WRONG.
My first bass was a TR series ibanez back in the "80's and I HATED it. Neck issues galore. I switched to fender. in '95 a friend of mine bought an ATK. I fell in love, but was broke. When I get to the point I could afford one, They were GONE!!!! Discontinued. DRAT! So when they came back a feww years back, I had to have one. I got a 700 series, and the Fenders are all but retired. Highs, lows, they're all here! And what a comfy neck! And for the money, beats the snot out of a Stingray. (I own one of those also) Do yourself a favor and buy one!
I switched from a Fender standard Jazz to this. Though nothing sounds quite like the Fender Jazz, this can come very close - and then it can sound like a Rickenbacker, a Stingray, a Fender Precision, etc...and this plays way better.I have this string up 120, 95, 75, 55 and tuned DGCF. The lows just rumble. It's unbelievable. The active electronics and coil selecting allow for a huge variety of tones without even looking at your amp. I have an ATK300 in natural finish and pictures do it no justice. No other bass in it's price range can compete. This bass transcends genres, playing styles and ability levels. It is a must have.
I'm a beginner ready to move up fromthe bass I have. I went to local store and saw this kick a@* looking bass hanging on the wall(in red). The pictures don't do this thing justice. They hooked this thing up to a Line6 2-10 combo and man did this thing sound sweeeet! Even with everything set flat. I didn't have a lot time to tweak it, but you can tell this machine is capabile of a lot. Anybody thats like me, and ready for that next step in sound and quality THIS IS IT!
