Sold Selling my Quest Atak 1 and Atak 2...

Post by The Chad on Mon Feb 17, 2014 3:46 pm

Hey men! Selling my two Quest Atak's. Both made in Japan 1984. Funding other guitar pursuits.


1984 Quest Atak 1. Black with maple neck, really fine condition. Solid wood body, not plywood! 100% original from pups to tuners to knobs. These are seriously under-rated guitars, they're great players and look fantastic!







The original stock single coil pickup is now back in the guitar (the Duncan you see in the pic was sold, turned out to be too hot). The case shown doesn't go with it, it actually goes with the Atak 2 custom below. It does come with a case however, a chipboard case that fits it just fine with room to spare. I'll update with better pics tomorrow. Be on the lookout for them!

$175.00 including chipboard case.



1984 Quest Atak 2. 100% stock original. VERY rare, special bird. It's a one of a kind as far as anyone knows. Has a factory active boost circuit, crazy green body with super cool yellow binding. LOVE the color of this thing. Considered swapping necks with the black Atak (above), to see how it looks with a maple neck. Never did that, but would be fun to experiment with it you bought both. Never seen another like this one, and neither have the Quest/Vantage experts I've interacted with on the Matsumoku forums. They think it was made for an artist back in the day. I don't know, but it's amazing. Comes with original Quest Atak case that fits like a glove.





MUCH better photos coming tomorrow. Be on the lookout for them!

$275.00 including original case (the case is shown in the Atak 1 photos above...).

Not the shipping(well a bit) it's the customs over here who are getting real sharp and want their pound of flesh, unfortunately.. Crying or Very sad 

They just hit me for £143 on one shipment. Plus shipping. affraid 

Think your selling yourself a bit short on the 'Greeny'

Nice axes. love the Maple neck and the color combination on the green is absolute 1980's-1990's glam and cool.

I really like the look of these. The green one is fantastic.
If you were in the UK I would have the Atak 2

There was an Attack 1 on ebay recently, but had been badly repainted, frets were worn and generally all a bit sorry. Chap wanted £100 for it. A lot when it needed a so much work.

I'll have to keep looking....

I am now enjoying both of these beauties. The green is quite impressive in person and the active boos is very nice. Solid construction and good quality as well but should expect that from Uncle Matt ...... Very fast and agile necks on both. They will be played, enjoyed and cared for.

Glad you're loving them Arthur, they could not have gone to a better home!   Cool  I still think of the Green Monster daily, isn't that ridiculous?!   Laughing   So glad they didn't go to a teenager who'll stick EMG's in them, beat them to kingdom come and then trade them for an ESP LTD.   affraid 

They're a cool pairing.  Remember to send pics if you swap the necks!!!  Love to see the maple on green and the black on black!
