    A few days ago my wife and I were sitting in the living room and she was going through the mail and saw an ad for a clearance sale at GC. She actually asked me if I wanted to go and look at the basses. So after I picked my jaw up off the floor we headed out to the store. We walked around and I was prety surprised at some of the prices on the gear. I picked up a few different basses before I tried out the Ibanez ATK and I was blown away. She was also interested in finding a bass for herself and was looking at the Squier Jazz basses. We ended up walking out of the store with two basses and a small practice amp for her. We got all of that for a little over $600. She's been practicing everyday and actually played all the way through her first song already, she learned a Blink 182 song.
    My wife rules!
    She's planning on joining talkbass soon so you all better be nice to her lol.
    Anyway, here's a pic of my new bass for your viewing pleasure.

    From what I understand it's a limited edition ATK made for Guitar Center exclusively. When I got it home I found all kinds of electrical problems and had to fix them myself. I got this bass really cheap as part of their clearance sale, I wonder if Guitar Center bought all of these at a low price because there were issues with them. It doesn't matter though, I got the bass working right and it's an amazing bass. This is definitely going to be my main bass now.

    By the way, my wife just signed up here and she already saw the comment I made about her. I'm sure you all will be hearing from here sometime soon lol.

    you failed.
    Now if you had gotten her to learn guitar or buy a drum set
    then youd just need a kid and after about 13-14 years youd be set with a family band :bassist:

    nice bass tho :hyper:
