I was looking up Stingrays and there was one guy who mentioned that The Ibanez ATK300 gets a very similar sound but for a fraction of the price. So I look them up and there's even a review that states the same point, on top of that there's a review on UG that makes a point of the similarity to the Stingray. I'm just interested in more opinions. I already have a pretty descent amp so I don't need to worry about that part.

This is the one I'm looking at:
I've played on once but I can't say that the tone was like a stingray. I didn't really mess around with the tone though so it could do with a little tweaking.

Ibanez K5
Warwick Rockbass Vampyre 4

Line 6 Bass Pod XT Live
Epiphone Les Paul Custom
You could never get the Stingray tone from anything but a Stingray, but you can get pretty damn close with this bass. The ATK705 (the ATK with the single coil as well) is arguably one of the most versatile basses ever.
They have great punch.
...it was bright as the sun, but with ten times the heat
i tried the five string and loved it,
the EQ is good and the bass sounds & feels good!
