Yes should fit, thats the good side of the 200 série, with the modified bridge.
How is it modified??
The 300 bridge cutting is straight but the 200 bridge follow the contour of the pickup screw allowing a MM pickup to fit. Take a close look at an atk300 bridge and an ATK 200 bridge around the pickup. You ll understand.
So if I ever wanted to put an MM pup in my older 90's ATK300, I'd have to shave the bridge to fit it in?
well if im not selling it, I should post photos at least.
Oh man I wish!!
Yes, look at the form of the MM pickup, the screws, the atk300 bridge is cut straight around the pickups but the ATK 200 include two waves to match MM type screw placement.
Oh I see, it's all about the screw holes/tabs. Got it now. Thanks.
You are welcome
My rig from Saturday's gig. My ATK3EX1 is my workhorse. I call it, "The Horror".

Not sure where I went wrong, but i'll try again.
I'm looking to potentially purchase an Ibanez ATK300. The only problem is, it's a bit too mid-focused. Is there a way to expand the bandwidth of the mid frequency to really dial it down a bit?

The onboard EQ should help with that big time. If you can’t scoop out what you want, it may not be the bass for you. Other than that you’re looking at an outboard EQ. I know I run my mid on my ATK in the middle and sometimes even take a little more out. But that’s one of the selling features of the ATK. It’s attack. And a lot of that is it’s voicing. You could also try running it in a different pickup selection of the 3 provided.
I’m actually pretty sure that the ATK got its name from the word attack. Someone correct me if I’m wrong....
That's correct I believe.
That barky midrange does seem to be an ATK thing. I just pulled my ATK's out of the closet the last few days after not using them for quite a while. The black one gets more fret slap with low action than the other one and I'd forgotten what a rude, barky bass that is when you dig in some - it definitely makes its presence known in the mix. The natural finish one has a Nordstrand MM in it, which I noticed has a thicker bottom end and a little less midrange focus than the stock ATK pickup in the black one.
I played a Japanese made ATK exclusively for 4 years in a reggae band using the following EQ settings: Bass at about 2/3, treble at 1/3 and the mids dialed in from zero up to the point where you start hearing them coming in. Did not sound mid-focused, let alone "barky". It had a nice fat but clear warm tone.
I play my ATK full mid on the onboard eq and full mid on my combo. Bass flat on bass and 3/4 combo and treble cut on the bass flat on combo. Its not a barking dog anymore, its a roaring lion. Add some compression and watch the look on the face of your guitarist . Precious
