My go-to bass is my ATK300. I love its richer mids and rolled-off highs compared to a real Stingray, while still enjoying that low-end growl I really desire. I bring it with me when trying out different basses and I always walk away loving the tone of the ATK above everything else (my tastes being subjective to my ears, of course). The issue I have is that I find my ATK to be quite ugly, which is why I'm hunting for another bass on a regular basis. I know it sound petty, but I like the visual impact of a great bass when playing live almost as much as the tone of the bass. I suspect that I'm caught in the 'ugly girlfriend' mode from my high school days, whereby I dated a girl who looked 'eh' but treated me like royalty. Has anyone else loved the sound of a bass they just didn't find appealing to look at? If so, which direction did you go - moving on to something prettier while sacrificing tone or sticking with the sound you love and simply putting up with the design of the beast?
