    "It features a selector switch to go from the bridge pick-up to the middle."

    Am I missing something, or does that not make a whole lot of sense.

    Coil cut, I'd bet.
  4. I bet that thing sounds honky. The pickup is just too close to the bridge.

    love the ATK, but hate the pickup and its placement.
  9. :confused:
    What is it that you like about it then?
  10. Yeah way to close, an ATK is cheap enough I would just get one of them
  11. Why would it have two volume controls when it just has one pickup?
  12. I wouldn't say "why clone a clone" b/c let's face it, there is a VERY small contingent of truly original ideas out there (and that does look wonky as he!! w/that pickup placement). What I would say is why would you buy this when you could be a little patient and come across a used ATK for not much more ca$h. Just my opinion.

    But seriously: if it feels, sounds, and looks good then go for it.
  14. The ATKs arent just stingray clones. They get a good stingray sound but they do a lot more than that. I think the big issue is why bother when the ATKs arent that much lol

    Heck, room for 3 more! :D

    You could easily add a 2nd almost up to the one that's there, and make a poor man's Sadowsky Modern.
