    Is this the one that guitar center currently has?

    Edit: I think this exact same bass was previously sold on this site...

    Oh man I love that color pallate. Way smooth. Not usually a fan of white basses. But when they look like that, I’m down. And fretless?! Mmmmm

    Please Help!

    I have an ATK200...lovely bass with great tone, but the pre-amp has not held up: the solder joints to the output jack are broke and the pickup selector switch will not toggle, so I can only play the rear single coil. This is not a usable tone for me! In fact, I would like to gut this pre-amp and wire the humbucker as passive only. All of my tone adjustments were made using outboard effects and I only liked playing the bass in humbucker mode.

    Does anyone make a pre-wired harness I can stick in this thing to make it passive? Can I just stick a simple p-bass wiring harness in this ATK? AS far as controls go, I am just looking for Volume and Tone.

    I just got an ATK805e last week and absolutely love it! The only thing that would make it better would be a swap with one of the 815e maple pickguards...so if anyone wants to trade theirs, let me know! :)

    I'm sure anything is possible really. I've seen some pretty crazy stuff get put in ATK's. This a good place to start. Hopefully someone else with more knowledge will see this post. I am not that great with this stuff. But the ATK gives you plenty of room to do what you want to that's for sure.

    Re: ATK 200 wiring, totally do-able. Post pix of existing toggle switch wire side. Colors may be different from my 300. 500k pots are normal for double coil pickup. What are you going to do with the pre amp after?

    Hello,

    Does anybody know if Ibanez is coming out with anything new for the ATK’s soon?

    Last word on the street is that they were looking drop the ATK line. No idea if that’s true or not but came from a journalist friend who is a huge Ibanez fan boy. He claimed that their bass program was getting stale and needed a revamp.

    Take it for what it’s worth but I’ve heard this more than once for multiple years. I’ll beleive it when I see it.

    What’s everyone’s thoughts on the ATK815E? I currently have a ‘90’s 305 and love it. I was wondering if the 815E is a little more versatile.

    Thanks

    I have a friend that has the 815 and my 95 has a warmer tone than his. I have giged his bass and live couldn’t really tell the diffence other than string choice. I think if you sat down with identical strings on both it would be an Apple to Apple comparison with slight differences based on personal preferences.

    I've got a 1205e Prestige on it's way to me that I got for a killer price!

    Hey, Ibanez does not have the five string ATK listed on the web page anymore. Plus Muscians Friend has the five string marked as “Unavailable “.

    What does this mean?

    That is odd, I know that I emailed them a couple of weeks ago about pickguards for them (well the 805) and they said the next run of pgs they would have would come in September. Maybe they’re back ordered?

    Sam Ash has it though here:
