G&L
Kiloton bass

The Kiloton puts a Leo Fender-designed humbucker on the SB-2 he originally introduced way back in 1982 with a P/J setup. Armed with a series/ split/parallel mini-toggle switch, this passive, 34"-scale bolt-on keeps it old school with 1w" nut width, medium-jumbo frets, a maple neck, and maple or rosewood fingerboard.
