Overview

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, MetalĀ¦ 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.

Includes gig bag.

my ATK805E

By JOHN GILBREATH

from Mesquite, Texas

Comments about Ibanez ATK805E Premium 5-String Bass Guitar:

This is an incredible bass guitar, the first thing you notice is the beauty of this ergonomic instrument. The bridge is a real eye catcher with the chrome against the dark walnut stained body. I was amazed at the quality of the sound for the amount of money I paid. It has a 3-way switch for a humbucker that splits 3 different ways, switch pulled all the way to the rear picks up on the bridge and body. With the switch in the middle position you have both sides of the humbucker activated to give you a full tonality of the bass,I personally like a heavy low and this delivers what I want. With the switch in the forward position you get the really crunchy treble sound for slapping. The sonic arch pickup toward the neck is always activated so with the mid-range,bass,treble,balance and volume you have a multitude of soundscapes at your disposal. My bandmates really enjoyed the deep valley of sound I was getting. From metal to blues as well as country and gospel I would highly recommend this bass.The rosewood pick-guard is also a nice touch. I wish they offered. this in a fretless.

LOVE IT

Comments about Ibanez ATK805E Premium 5-String Bass Guitar:

This bass absolutely won me over. I first saw it in the store and actually thought it was ugly. I heard someone play it and I was rather impressed and then I played it and BOOM this thing was phenomenal! It just feels so good in your hands and the sound is unmatched. It's a bit beefier compared to the other Ibanez bass guitars, and its sound is very unique. This bass can do absolutely anything you want it too. I would highly recommend this bass to anyone.
