Meaty traditional tone.
Not everyone needs a sleek, narrow-necked bass like the Soundgear. That's why Ibanez first came out in 1995 with the ATK (short for "attack," the aggressive ATK's defining characteristic). Unlike the Soundgear, the ATK is big--with the big, bold tones you get from a traditional big neck and big body. But the ATK bass guitar is no one-trick, traditional workhorse. It's also versatile and comfortable thanks to its unique electronics and physical layout. In other words, the right choice for blues, hard rock, country players, and anyone else who wants every
single plus of a traditional bass and more. For a sample of what the ATK750KA model can do, listen to the work of Chris Norris on "As I Lay Dying."

At first glance, this bass looks like it will freakin rock. It has a huge, fender-like in size body, "atk" pickups, and a thick neck. When plugging it in, and after adjusting the eqs to various settings on both the bass and amplifier, it sounded hollow like an empty easter egg. Virtually no boost on mids and barely hear the high frequencies. I mainly heard the low frequencies (no matter what volume, even w/the bass and lows down down). I far prefer the soundgear to this bass, as that bass regardless of model, is efficient, comfortable, and most of all, rich in tone.
Unbelievable beautiful! Sounds great! Plays smooth.The finish is perfect, the only flaws are some of the body laminating under the awesome finish is a little sloppy. You can't see it except under a close eye but it is absolutely gorgeous. The KOA top is perfect only the way the Ash matched up with the third layer.The neck is smooth with Walnut strips. The frets are shiny chrome and the fret board is a nice maple. I played a SR300DX for three years with the thin neck but I like the ATK neck more; comfortable (no cramping) for chords.The MM style triple coil pickup is sweet but with the 5th switch position (J/MM) together is a little strong, must be active pickups.The pictures do not do it justice! Buy it, you will not be sorry!
This is a wonderful bass. I played in a small mom and pop type store through an eden combo and this thing sings! Not only is it a beautiful piece of equipment but like every high-end ibanez, it plays like butter. Though its beefier than other ibanez basses, I would say its still plays better than a fender in that price range. It sounds almost exactly like a musicman that has the jazz/humbucker pickups, but in my opinion, looks waaay sweeter and is about $500 bucks cheaper. There's a pickup switch much that lets you single out or blend the pickups. The humbucker gives you that old funky flea sound while the j-pup really gives you a smooth low end. I'd say the only sound you cant get is a vintage p-bass or j-bass growl. Really try and play one of these, but if you can't, and are looking for crisp, beefy tone perfect for slapping, pickwork or some finger-funk, buy this bass. I'm planning on selling my schecter and one of my cabs just so I can buy this thing.
Sweet Bass. Very wide selection of tonal quality, gets the highs and the lows at the flip of the pickup selector. Really good playability! The only complaints I have, the strings are futher apart than most basses, and i wish it was cheaper.
