    I was wondering if the jazz pickup on some ATK models really makes a difference with the sound(for the better)

    IIRC, you get a 5-way switch which gives you all of the combinations a regular ATK gets, plus the J-plus humbucker and J by itself.

    I don't think more versatility on an already versatile bass can be a bad thing!

  3. I played around with one of the ATK700's (I think that was the model) and the jazz pickup made a BIG difference in the versatility of the bass. I was really impressed with how many more sounds you can get out of it, considering that the ATK300 is kind of a one trick pony.

    As far as I'm concerned, adding a pickup closer to the neck on just about any bass is a good thing.
