    Hey everybody,

    I got an Ibanez USATK 5 yesterday and I am VERY satisfied with it. I played it to several rigs and combos right now and sound is just blowing me away. Its a great bass !

    The B is very tight, especially when strung through the body.

    My Bass is Black with a Black Pickguard and a Maple Fingerboard. Its beautifull but I would like it to look more interesting so I would like to know if anyone here knows where I can get pickguards for that model ? Or do you think I cut just cut the pickguard out of a Standard J-Bass Pickguard ?

    I don't think there are any other colored pickguards
    for sale , but why not paint it ?

    if you cut it out of another pickguard ,I think it will not satisfy you . there will always be some kind of
    cutting edge left .
  3. I don't think Ibanez makes the ATK anymore but you might be able to get parts from them.

    Congradulations, thats a nice bass.

    They still make them, but they don't sell them in the USA anymore (go figure, a good ibanez and they don't sell it to their biggest market). You can get an upgraded model too that has an additional J pick-up in the neck position.
