    Description and specs per G&L:

    Explosive Power.
    ~ a unit of explosive power equivalent to 1,000 tons of TNT.

    What happens when you pack Leo Fender's potent Magnetic Field Design bass humbucker into the sleek shape of his SB-2? The new G&L Kiloton 5: explosive power that's easy to handle.

    Kiloton 5's silhouette is the most comfortable bass body ever created by Leo. It's compact and pure, with every curve and contour perfectly executed. And now it's carrying more firepower than ever, with Leo's G&L Magnetic Field Design humbucker placed right in the sweet spot he specified back when the sign over our door still read CLF™ Research.

    Kiloton 5's single MFD bucker fires without the aid of a preamp, while a 3-position series/split/parallel toggle harnesses the coils' power. Simple volume and tone controls are devastatingly effective, revealing a wide range of textures Leo's MFD bucker is famous for. What's more, Kiloton 5 is armed with a 6-bolt neck and Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock™ bridge to transfer all the energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument.

    Kiloton 5 is a new force of nature, wrought from Leo's elements and ready for impact. Click the the Video Demo tab to hear it, then get to your G&L dealer to experience it.

    Made in Leo Fender’s historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, the Kiloton 5 is available with a wide range of custom options including body and neck woods, body and neck finishes, neck profiles and pickguard materials.

    That is the best looking G&L I have ever seen, period. If I might suggest posting a link to the online reviews of this bass so potential buyers can hear just how good this bass sounds; it sounds flat out killer.
  8. String spacing?
