    I recently aquired an Ibanez ATK300 (Korean) that had its circuit boards fried by someone obviously soldering on crack and the original 3 coil PU was gone.
    I've since installed a Bartolini MMK Musicman replacement PU with a 3 way toggle in the passive mode.Sounds fantastic!Lots of lows and mids thru a Behringer BX4500 head and Ampeg 2 X 10 classic cab. Just wondering if anyone else has done any mods to these highly underated basses.
