A 4-string for those who desire a classic look with the legendary Ibanez tone and craftsmanship you've come to expect.
For the working bassist who prefers a bass in the classic style, here's the Premium ATK. But classic style simply served as a starting point for the bass designers at Ibanez. After a long, intense period of R&D —much of it focused on pick up combinations—Ibanez arrived at a version of the ATK that is markedly versatile. As they like to say: "Every song, every set, every night." Add to that the Ibanez Premium level of quality, on which touring and studio musicians can rely.
ATK Premium features the great combination of the original Ibanez “Sonic Arch” front pickup and a double humbucker rear pickup, providing an extraordinary tonal palette. Output balance of both pickups is maintained, string-to-string, by the design of the matching arched pickup cover and coil inside pickup unit. With a CAP Double Humbucker bridge pickup and a Ibanez proprietary CAP Sonic Arch neck pickup, in combination with the specially made ATK-N3 3-band EQ, the ATK Premium delivers true versatility. Jazz, Gospel, Classic Rock, Metal… there's no form of music outside the comfort zone of the ATK Premium.
Here's why Ibanez calls it "The Premium Treatment" — the fret edges of these ATKs are a result of their luthiers’ supreme attention and takes slow, demanding process. As the result, the neck offers a smooth, comfortable fret-hand feel.
