    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    To be honest, it's hard to tell if it truly is in good condition from the pic. I would recommend e-mailing the seller. He appears to have a good rating, so you have that to go by, at least.

    As for the neck, nothing really looks "wrong" with it, so to speak - it just looks a bit dirty from wear. Looks like it's had a bit of wear, so you'll need to find out about the condition of the frets, how much "play" is left with the trussrod, etc.

    I have owned 2 ATKs and they are great basses for the money. They are heavy as hell, but they sustain for days and they have a nice versatile tone. The neck is quite playable.

    The neck isn't TOO dark, it's more of a problem with the picture. Not much flast and white bodies make everything look darker. I'm a bit wary because it's a private listing, but the rest looks good to me.
  3. BUY IT!

    Ibanez ATK's will just continue to become more and more collectible.
