I've been waiting for a ric for almost 2 years. I'm getting tired and thinking of getting a less expensive bass right away and "stereo-ising" it (basically adding the ric-o-sound feature to a non-ric bass...). First I was thinking about a musicman, but they're not really less expensive than the rics. I've heard good comments about the Ibanez ATK300 and like to hear opinions from people who own one. I've allready read alot of good reviews but I still need to be convinced. Do you guys think I can get a descent ric sound by stereo-ising an ATK? Thanks!
