For no good reason, I've never had much of an interest in Ibanez basses, but I'm changing my tune. First step was an Ibanez ATK100, which I really enjoyed. Looks, playability, sound, the whole shot. (Got to try me an ATK300 one of these days). Last week, I bought an Ibanez Artcore singlecut. I love this thing. Construction quality well beyond its price, looks great, plays great, sounds great. My only complaint so far is the location of the front strap button. Looking real hard at a BTB now. Still not a big fan of the more widely known ibanez stuff (SRX etc.), but these three basses really appeal to me.
