    Looks dang nice! I wonder if someone ever tried replacing the huge bridge (Why, Ibanez, why?) with a standard bridge, though.
     
  3. Maybe Ibanez came up with the 'bigger bridge' theory. Traben's are really just Ibby knockoffs....o_O

    BTW, nice upgrade!
    :bassist: Fo lyfe!
     
  4. Hey,that's a nice pickguard...
    Where'd you get it? or did you DIY it? The 2 ATK's in my family (my 305 (same colour as yours) and my brother's 300 FL (sunburst)) could do with a nice clear one!

    Good guys over there.


    More mass on the bridge leads to more sustain more-or-less, I think that's what they had in mind
     
  6. why? those bridges were awesome.....great pickup too

    I dig the giant bridge. Never been much for clear pickguards, but it looks nice anyway. Cool bass.

    Looks nice!!! love that see thru finish!!!

    Talking about the huge bridge, if you replace it, you´ll kill your ATK´s soul. Period.
