    Since I dont like to offend anyone by calling things "knock-offs" or "cheap imatations" I want to know who makes the best replicas of the classics. There are tons of horrible P and J replicas, but who makes a decent one, and what about Stingray replicas. Anyone got a good one?

    The Ibanez ATK is Ibanez's take on the Stingray...it's not a replica per se, but its got the huge humbucker, similar electronics configuration and an overall look very reminiscent of the 'Ray.

    IMO Sadowsky makes a Jazz &/or a Precision that Fender can't copy, quality, sound & feel wise. :D :p :eek:

    Of course, we know that Nino's thoughts are completely without bias. ;)

    Although, he is absolutely right.
