    Was looking at this deal on a Fender Standard Dimension IV (MIM).

    I've also become recently smitten with the new G&L Kiloton.

    I can solder, and I can copy a wiring diagram, but not capable of quite figuring out what to do on my own.

    With a wiring mod and added switch could one get close to the Kiloton sound and pickup options with this Dimension?

    Thanks in advance for the advice!

    Both those links go to the Dimension.

    I believe the Kiloton is a passive, single humbucker bass with a series/parallel/single switch.
    Should be doable with the Dimension. You should consider push/pull pots instead of adding the switch. Series/parallel on one, coil cut on the other.

    Oops- fixed the G&L link.
    This is it FWIW: G&L USA Kiloton

    And thanks- that's a good thought with the pots.
