I know mine is one of the first couple years they made that bass. And I've played a number of newer models with the CAP pups in them. While I think they still capture that "ATK sound", there is something in the old ones that the newer ones can't capture. It's def feel too but the sound is just different. Not sure how to describe it. They both rock butts. But I love my old school ATK a lot for the more unique sounds and attack it gets. I will almost assuredly never sell that bass. It's the second bass I've ever bought and it's worth much more to me than it's actually worth.
