    Due to unfortunate financial circumstances, I can not rationalize keeping this around. My cat recently went through a series of lung disorders that racked up a very large vet bill, and I've already got 2 basses.. nonetheless this is not easy.

    I got this from Kesslari on these very Classifieds. I'll quote what he said about it:
    I'll amend that this is not a thick piece of quilted maple on top, it's very thin, almost like paper. Nonetheless it looks fantastic. Newly set up and polished and strung with DR Fatbeams. This bass sounds heavenly. Even response, GREAT B string, great neck. It's standard Jazz Vol Vol Tone. The Barts have a mild growl to them and the tone is very pure. I can't find anything bad to say about this bass. The tuners are ROCK SOLID.

    I'm looking to get what I have in it, 425$. As I am only human, I'd prefer to sell but I MIGHT be pressured into accepting a trade + cash for something else, but it would have to be pretty tempting. ATK305 = tempting.

    Thanks for looking, PM me any questions or comments! :)

    bump: I've got one of these - they are VERY nice. I bought mine as a cheap fun bass, and it's REALLY taken over. Lots of bass for not much cash...
    (and I'm upgrading the pickups in mine too...)
