    Thank you, love it, it's passive, it has power with the bass lines pup, is stunningly beautiful, thank you.

    Yes all the neck thru deluxe models did from what I have read on them.

    My Atlas 5 Deluxe came in a couple months ago. I wholeheartedly that this is one hell of a bass, and can echo the sentiments above. It’s not light, but the tone justifies it. The Basslines MM pickup can trick you into thinking that’s it’s active and it’s very close to Stingray territory, sonically.

    Plus it helps that I prefer the neck on this over just about every MM Stingray that I have ever played.

    I recently bought a 2012 Atlas 5 Deluxe as well. I picked it up online in a NOS blowout. Best deal I've ever gotten. I liked it so much that I went out and found a NOS 2012 Atlas 4 Deluxe. I love the necks on both. SD Basslines are monsters, and the minimalist electronics are great. 2 knobs and a toggle switch. Not just the PU, but the bridge and hardware are high-end. For "bang for the buck" you are not going to do better than one of these, if you can find one.

    I believe I got mine through the same seller too. I thought it may have been too good to be true, but it’s the real deal. Congrats!

    apb 90m bass in case.jpg
    the ad was only on Craigslist in Tampa area , the guy actually drove to me, I tried it out and bought it , Just a bit heavier weight than I prefer but it is a quality built bass , Even with old dead strings it plays and feels good , I still prefer the feel and slimmer neck of my similar shaped 90s Prophecy basses , But I wanted the maple neck , Once I ditch the old grungy strings and install a lighter new set of 40-100 gauge strings it'll be just fine
