    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:

    Here are the translated 5-string specs:

    - Reservations will be released in early September! Ibanez "Premium" ATK Series 5-strings model high playability and ease of play. Originality and the height of the hardware performance provides. It is an essential element for guitar / bass Ibanez is high performance. Emergency did not know if the so-called luxury goods and custom models, without having to choose them, or you will not be able to deliver to guitarist / bassist of many more, the high-performance and reliable model. Can produce with electrical and hardware material is crafted in the selection, design and craftsmanship that is attention to detail is alive across, at a high level, such items is whether it would be possible. To the proposition that, as the potential to overturn the existing image of, "better-than-expected high-performance model" so to speak, Performance Beyond Expectation, Ibanez "Premium" series. ※ is a sample image.

    Not sure they will be importing any to the US.
  11. 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.

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