    I'm somehow not so satisfied with stock pickup of my ibanez atk300.
    In single coil mode I want it to sound 'more' like single coil J bass. Sometimes switching between different modes changes sound only a little. As I have read in this forum there are not so many possibilities for exchange. Other sad situation is, that I checked all the shops near me, and only one that I found I could try, how it possibly could sound, was SD SMB4D.

    As I want to order the pickup from eBay or some internet store (because it's the only possibility to get one :D ) I hope to receive some advices.

    As I found out that 1) Bassculture is only specially for atk made, but it makes it more as MM.
    Oters options are 2) Bartolini MM4CBJD,
    3) EMG MMTW
    4) Delano Hybrid (some how, even from the look of it makes it my favorite)

    So what do you suggest?
    And what about these Fat Jazz pickups?

    p.s. sorry for my clumsy english.
