    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    Arizona
    I'm definitely on the fence with this, but I just acquired an L2500 and have been looking for one for some time, so I need to sacrifice this custom ordered Kiloton.

    I have had the Kiloton 5 since October of 2017, it is pristine with no cosmetic or electronic issues. Case included along with all case candy, cert., etc....The kiloton has a tremendous sound and reminds me of a P on steroids. It has never been gigged and I used it at practice maybe 5 times, which I can say sounded great in a group setting.

    Here is a list of my custom additions from the order:

    • Swamp ash body
    • Matching headstock
    • Ebony board
    • White pearl block inlays
    • White neck binding
    • Black binding on top of body
    • White pearloid pg
    • Graphite nut

    Other details:

    Color is metallic tangerine
    Neck is hard rock maple
    10 lbs on my bathroom scale

    * REDUCED Price for quick sale * $ 1585 OBO shipped/insured to lower 48 US..... Paypal only

    I just reduced the price for a quick sale !!!!... I found a new baby I've been wanting for a long time... so I slashed my original price !!!! This is a killer deal for a custom G &L

    These basses sound fantastic. You might to try including a youtube link with the demonstration of this bass. People that have not actually heard it have no idea just how good it sounds.

    You are so right on that !!!!! ... I can attest that this baby is thunderous.... I wanted the Kiloton to be a passive version of a MusicMan but I tell ya, it is so much more than that!!!

    This Kiloton is a great bass !...I was impressed with its sound but what I really want is another active/passive bass..... I'm pretty open to different trades if not listed...as long as they are 5 strings :)

    Man, I tempted to offer my DJ5 and some cash, but I suspect you don’t want a Jazz.

    The sound clips I’ve heard for these basses are amazing. This one seems to have all the extras, too. Looks amazing.
