Just wanted to thank everyone for their opinions in finding a godo funk/slap bass. I was able to find someone who is selling me a USA Ibanez ATK 5 for $450. yes, this includes the pearloid pickguard, double dot inlays, and the tension free neck. it is a factory second, although he says there is nothign wrong with it at all, i wanna say its probably got som enot so appealing knots in the wood or something like that (its a transparent green finish over american swamp ash) So thanks everyone for your help, i dont have a pic, but heres one that is identical to it except blue: http://www.gbase.com/guitar_picture.asp?guitar=237999 once again, thanks for all your help guys. ill let ya know how it turns out.
