    Go for it. They are great basses. The sound is really nice and punchy, twangy, etc. Just like a Ray, but alot more reasonably priced, and have great necks. There are alot of models, but the main one (the single pickup) is an ATK 300. There is an ATK100 (passive) ATK 300 (Active) ATK 400 (MM + J, Active), and ATK 1200 I believe (MIA, quilt tops, etc) those are all of the ones I've heard of. They are a great buy. I love mine to death. I see you've bid on it-just keep going. If it's not your thing, you can easily unload them.

    Peace,

  3. Yups just sold a Trace Cab for £230 so0o easily cover purchase ...

    was gonna get that money and sell my GT6-B and Marcus Miller and get a better bass..


    But if the ATK is great will sell up and put money in a savings account to buy the bass i reallly want...


    Migth Strip the ATK down to bare wood and put a satin finish on it...


    either way not gonna lo0ose that much on it..:)
