Being a guitarist, I've always gravitated to Ibby SRs. I've played many various basses but I always come back to SRs just for comfort and convenience. Having said that, I've always been intrigued by the ATK series. And while I actually planned for an SRH505 Fretless as my next bass, the opportunity to grab a used ATK305 dirt cheap was too good to pass up. So here we are. And the obligatory crappy short clip that comes with it. First off, this bass is HEAVY. I haven't played this weighty since my friend's US Jazz Bass and a few Precisions. And the neck is chunkier than what I'm used to as well. Overall it puts up a fight compared to my more comfy SR zone, but I quite like that. Namely because the sound more than makes up for it. It's thick and huge. While my vid doesn't really capture the essence of the tone, I just plugged clean and dry into my Microtubes 900 and I was in 70s funk territory. Hitting with a pick got me close to Phil Lynott meets The Stranglers grit that I'm so fond of. I've heard that for the price these went for, they're referred to some circles as Musicman Stingray killers... perhaps too farfetched a call, but I'm not complaining. This is a great bass and it'll be a great studio tool.
