    Really attracted to the ATK right now. Seems like the MM and Rick killer on a budget without giving up much.

    @rogerbmiller I saw you are a fan...has anything changed? Should I still seek a 300 series? I want impolite.

    Is it ok to just settle on the bridge pup only or do I want the jazz bar at the neck also?

    I am still an avid fan. Have been ever since they came out to that is unlikely to change! :)

    I only own the single pickup models. I had a newer ATK800 which had both pickups a couple of years ago. It was a nice bass but didn't sound like the older ones. In short I like the other single PU models way better.

    The key descriptor I use for the sound is impolite. It's a pretty intense preamp. The newer ones were voiced so that the mids and treble were more mellow. The original 300 cuts and growls. I did a sound demo of my 300 which I can post here in a little bit.

    Here is a link to the demo I recorded. This was one in IOS Garage band on my iPhone using an iRig interface. About as simple as it gets in terms of gear.

    As I recall the amp plug in was their uncolored GK type interface. I didn't manipulate settings or boost.

    Two tracks for the bass- one for the groove and one to add some texture in the upper register.
