New 800 series ATK available in US.

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Funk Factor, Aug 9, 2012.

  1. I work at a local music store and we got some info on new goodies available to the US market.
    The 800 series Premium ATK's will be available in 4 and 5 string.
    The 805 is decked out with a single coil neck position pickup!!

    Just when I thought I had enough ATK's :bassist:
  3. I forgot to bring the pamphlet home, Justin.... I'll do so tomorrow so I can scan it....They're pretty damned sweet, brother

    Oh my lord! I need one in a five... :bassist:

    How much are they and where can I find one?

  8. Are you sure these are coming in a 5-string? Couldn't find any information about it. As far as I know, the new ATKs only come with four strings. Would be good if they came out with a 5 though.

    I sold my old ATK305 a while ago, and have regretted it ever since. If they come out with a 5 banger I'll definitely by interested in purchasing one. :bassist:

    The one spec that caught my eye is 18mm string spacing - I was OK with the 17mm on my old ATK305, but 18 would be much nicer for me.

  13. Available in 4 and 5 string in September for the US market
