    Extra low, extra loud. ...not subtle. You'll get it right away.

    I'm cranky in my old age.
    So thats what I like about my LB-100 it has tons of bottom. I had a L-1500 for a while and it just didnt have enough bottom to suit me.

    The OMG setting is another world of low beyond the LB-100. Some folks seem to use it full-time. I can't imagine that. You'll see.

    I'd go with white pearl-top knobs.
    I found abalone knobs to match my fretboard decals...$10 for the knobs, same price for the decals.
    Found a set of the G&L toggle switch caps, too, and I've seen caps on Amazon...white, cream and black.

    Where can I find a digram on what the settings are on this particular L-2000?

    Short answer, absolutely not!

    Although they're already chrome and contrast with the dark body, so I don't know how much they'd change the look of the bass. But in the right light where it's more obvious they're white, I think they'd give it a more coordinated look. So, yeah, my short answer still holds - absolutely not!

    Cleaning up, first gig with new band tonight. Starting to show wear and tear from heavy (to me) usage. Plastic on the controls hanging in, I made the band hold a moment of silence when the battery compartment plastic gave up last month.

    Hit the back of the neck with 400 wet sand, it’s been getting sticky.

    Has anyone attempted to purchase an M series 3-band preamp and or the Bi coil pickups used in an mj4 from G&L?

    The website store offers m2000 mfd pickups and the L series preamp, but I’ve never seen any electronics for an mj4 available.

    Hi, folks! I got my new Kiloton yesterday, and figured I'd post it here. Are club member numbers still a thing?


    Just a couple initial thoughts so far. Since I like to tinker, does anyone know if the OMG mode from the L-1000 would work with a single tone knob? I guess I could always duplicate that circuitry with a stacked pot. (I'm not generally willing to permanently modify anything, especially if it's still under warranty. So, drilling holes is right out.)

    Anyway, really enjoying it so far.

    I fully intend to remove the plastic from my pickguard. Some day.

    Maybe.

    Thanks! I'm not generally fan of burst finishes in general, but this is done very nicely. Much better than I expected.

    Good looking bass!

    The OMG mode modifies the switch, and has nothing to do with the pots, so yeah, totally doable. Your current switch should work fine, you just need to add a .1uF cap, and you would lose the series mode. Or, you could add the cap on a push/pull pot and switch it in/out of the circuit to keep the stock series option.
