    Reality check: I have way too much stuff! :eek: So, I need to move a few things. This is a hella cool bass, but I'm not playing it out, so I suppose I should move it on to someone else. Here are the specs/pics as listed by my buddy MarkusBass, from whom I acquired this bass:

    It is still in excellent condition. Here it is in a shot of my three ATKs:

    I would like to get $900, shipped within the lower 48.

    Thanks, Tom.

    I, uh, don't know you so I wasn't going to say anything, but that could be the understatement of the decade.

    If only they spaced these a little wider, I would be all over this.

    That's one beautiful bass Tom! I wish it was a lefty! I've been searching for a lefty five string for two years now. I own a 95 four string, but would sure like a lefty! The search continues.....

    Hey Tom - what's the string spacing at the bridge on this one? And is the neck a C or more of the sdgr type thin flat profile?

    Okay, by my less accurate scale at home, this bass weighs in at 9.8 lbs. I'll try to get it down to the office for a more accurate measurement.

    The string spacing at the bridge is 17mm.

    The neck is not as thin as the SDGR style necks, but not chunky by any means.

    That is my ATK750KOA. It was a standard model up until just over a year ago, and a killer, killer production bass, IME/IMHO. I reviewed that bass back in issue #1. They absolutely blew these basses out when they discontinued the model, and I really think it was a shame. That neck pickup really added some neat tone options. For those who were able to get them at the blowout prices, though, they got an incredible bass at a ridiculously low price. :cool:

    Good eye! That is the very first Exotic Custom 5 that Pete built. It's an amazing bass in its own right, though different in many ways from what Pete is making nowadays. :cool:

    I forgot to mention, although this bass did not come with a case when I bought it, I did get a new Ibanez ATK hard case for it, and this is included.

    Are there really only about 100 of the 5 string USA ATK ever made? That would make it alot rarer than i thoght. I thought i remember a few people saying there are maybe around 300 or so

    The 300 or so quote may be for the total number of the USA Custom ATK's with the tension-free neck, but I do believe that the figure for the limited number of 5-string USA Custom ATK's is accurate.
