    You are looking at a (mid)2017 G&L Kiloton 5. I own two of these, and don't really need both, so this one is "on the block". For starters, the color is hard to photograph, and this is a case in which the pics don't really do it justice. The Ruby Red Metallic is very deep and rich looking and changes character with different lighting. It's gorgeous. Here are the build specs on this one:

    Built: May, 2017
    Body wood: Alder
    Neck: Quartersawn maple with maple fingerboard and white pearl block inlays
    Neck finish: Satin clear with body matching headstock
    Controls: Passive volume and tone, 3 position(series/single coil/parallel) toggle switch
    Pickup: Single G&L MFD Humbucker in approximately the Stingray position
    Weight: 9 lbs.

    For those of you who have not heard the Kiloton, it is NOT a single pickup Stingray clone as some have speculated. Think of it as a cross between a P-Bass and a Stingray, or a really aggressive P-bass with added "bark and growl". The Kiloton is very midrange present, and sits very nicely in a mix. The B string is tight and has a nice, full presence.

    Price is $1,200 shipped to the "lower 48", and includes the original hard case with all the "goodies".

    Really nice. I would love to take it off your hands. I just need to sell my 5er first. If you are looking for a custom made bass made by one of the best builders in the country, let me know. View attachment 2979092
