    Cool bass, but nothing to put the thumb in the middle.
    Any ideas how to make it?

    drill a couple of holes in the body in your favourite position and screw in a thumbrest??? anyway i never felt the need for a thumbrest on my atk other than the pickup...
     
  3. I had the same issue when i first got my atk as well. now my floating thumb technique is alot better than it was.

    I put one on my ATK with doublestick tape.

    You can see where the chrome has worn off near the upper left corner of the pickup; that's where my thumb rests.

    Here's an ATK thumbrest that is held by tape (see post #15).

    Nice
     
  9. As has been said, you can order a thumbrest and screw it in or, (a solution id never considered before) tape it on with automotive tape.

    This thread and the "ATK Love" thread posted a few posts back is makin' me GAS really hard for an ATK again!! :hyper: :D I need a job.
