Rare Blue USA Ibanez ATK Bass F/S

    i just got this bass today... i promised myself that i wasnt going to buy any more basses but when i saw this i couldnt resist since usa atk basses are rare enough to begin with but i had never seen or heard of one with this color... anyway before the bass arrived i knew i was going to have to sell it after i got some bills in the mail that i wasnt expecting... its a shame but i really cant afford to keep it... the bass is in pretty nice shape with only minor dings that dont really show in pics... there is a little buckle wear on the back but nothing that goes through the finish... i plugged it in and despite the old strings on it, it sounds really nice (a lot nicer than the previous korean atk that i owned a few years ago)... before i plugged it in i played it for a while and the d string was vibrating when i played it open, origionally i thought this was a setup issue, but after looking at things a little closer it appears that the string is coming unwound near the nut... im pretty sure that a new set of strings will solve the problem, if not the bass just needs to be set up properly (i dont know how to do a setup or id take care of it), besides i didnt notice the buzzing when it was plugged in

    anyway im looking to unload this pretty quickly and id rather do it off ebay, since ebay has been a real pain lately

    $400 + shipping (it comes with a gigbag)

    ill take better pictures tomorrow, there wasnt much sunlight today and the picture i posted doesnt do the bass justice

    For those that are not familiar with these, they were made by PBC (Dave Bunker) in PA. and they have his "tension free" neck system. They are killer instruments! If you need for info on the neck system, check out his web site...is different from anyone else necks. Someone will get a steal with this baby.

    Bump for a sick bass!
    I am an owner of a US ATK as well, and it is indeed a stingray killer! More tones (usable!). GREAT playability with an amazing neck design!
    GREAT wood grain on the body as well as the fretboard!
    GREAT price to boot!

    Jughaid and planetboulder take notice!

    All yooz would be nuts not to grab this killer slap/xtra punchy finger style/balls out Bass!

    I have been close to letting mine go, but I just love it so much. I am a die hard Warwick player and the ATK provides the perfect amount of contrast in regards to sound!

    Wowsers. If my car didn't explode on me again, I'd take this thing off your hands.

    Didn't I see this thing on eBay about a week ago?
