YouTube Video - doesn't sound bad, I don't think it's anywhere close to a 'Ray but it sounds OK.

Trying to get a legitimate feel for a guitar or bass tone through YouTube videos is like trying to fish by swimming underwater with your mouth open.

My bassist just picked up a used ATK 4-string for $150 (it was left behind at a local bar and sitting there forever with no one claiming it :nuts: ) and it's a fun bass. These look alright as well. I think I still prefer the EBMMs out of the three.

Slightly off topic, any idea if EBMM style pickups are a drop in replacement on the ATKs? The footprint looks very similar.

Yeah, they're fuck ugly, but look ok when being played, and feel and sound really good.
ATK's are GREAT basses - the closest thing to a 'Ray killer and if you can find them they don't break the bank. Full 19mm string spacing to boot.

The ATK305 I had was seriously awesome. Heavy, but incredibly playable and versatile.

They look fine to me in 5-string guise :shrug:

That Fender is really wonky looking compared to either a StingRay or an ATK. Not their best effort.
