I took a trip to Helsinki yesterday and visited most of the music stores there. What did I discover? Well, I tried appr 15 Fender jazz and precision basses, mostly MIA but also a few MIMs. I have to say that none of them wasn't good enough to consider a purchase. Dull sound, nonresonant wood, bad fretwork, even bad tuners. But... Then I tried a new Ibanez ATK 800 in another store and wow... Just Wow! This instrument looks great, feels great, plays great and the most important - sounds even better! It had a light and very resonant body, low action and great neck profile. I think they use a new preamp because I found other ATKs hanging besides the 800 like children toys. They were much heavier, duller and the preamp sounded like a crap. But the 800 felt like a EUR/USD 10000 instrument. Believe me, I have a bunch of very expensive basses hanging on the wall. And this EUR700 bass made me feel I need another bass. So watch out - there's a new "guy" in town! Highly suggested!
