SOLD ON EBAY G&L Tribute Kiloton White REDUCED to £250 collected
£325
Ipswich

Recommended Posts

Selling my recently acquired Kiloton bass from Bass Direct.


Never tried a G&L before so bought this just after buying a few other basses, it sounds great, proper bass.  However I have over extended the finances, so this one has to go.

 It is a b-stock bass with a crack to the finish on the back of the bass and a mark to the top of the headstock.

£300 delivered, £275 collected.

I've been craving one of these for a while. Interesting that you say it sounds like a p bass. More so than it does a stingray?

Ha! I’m doing Panto at the New Wolsey Theatre - acting and playing bass in the show which is a whole lot of fun but very sweaty work!

That makes sense!

Incidentally, with the single coil setting, does it sound remotely p like? I understand that the single coil is the one nearer the neck - just wondering what sort of sound this has.

Is it far enough forward to get near to the P sound, or far enough back to do the bridge solo jazz thing?

As you say being positioned as far back as it is the location doesn't lend itself to a classic p-bass tone, definitely more Jazz than P bass, and a modern take at that.

would it be possible to make a feature of the crack in the finish and do something like this:

The resin fills the cracks, U guess I would probably have to increase the size of the crack for the resin to take.

The resin would work quite well against the white finish

Yes, didn't mention the weight, lightweight for a bass and nice slim neck, very playable

My two basses with the best, cutting tones are an L2000 and a M/M PASSIVE USA SUB. This seems to have a similar pickup placement to the SUB and being passive, I imagine produces a similar tone with a slimmer neck. Prefered my passive USA SUB to the active SUB USA which I moved on.

The Kiloton differs from the passive stingray in that you coil select on the pickup to change the tone (single/series/parallel) and have a bass boost/cut.  But agree, it barks due to the positioning of the pickups. Love mine, close to p bass on the single coil setting and powerful humbucker goodness in the other two modes.  Love G and L's simple approaches making them gig monsters.

To be fair, that would look delicious!

      Possible trades plus cash 4 string- MM Fender Overwater Lakland
      Cheers.

      This is a true beauty I’ve decided should be with someone else who will treasure it and play it more then I and I.
      I had one of these the first time around - then Ricks, Celinder and CS basses but always hankered back to a real 60s Jazz - then this very special laid-back looking instrument came up.
      Alder body with ebony fretboard and beautiful maple binding by master luthier Jimmy Moon. 'Very comfortable A' profile slim neck - slimmer than '64 CSs I've owned.
      The neck is in lovely condition, has a subtle flaming and like the rest of the bass has acquired the sweetest sound, character and the authentic patina and feel only 50 years can give.
      Sounds just as you would expect - an authoritative true vintage tone with a wide palette and a comfortable 9lb.
      Originally sunburst - pictured, the previous owner who bought the bass new. It has all original pick ups and electronics.  
      He took it for a set up to a music dealer where some oik damaged the truss rod which is when Mr Moon was commissioned to make the bass unique.
      The ebony fingerboard is gorgeous and as you can see is set off by the understated mother of pearl dots.
      That’s it.
      Stay safe, stay healthy and stay in tune.
      Based near Manchester, could meet within reason, comes with substantial Fender case.
      PS - I am a professional photographer - the buyer will receive a Marcus Miller poster with my compliments. https://www.william-ellis.com/

      £799 (ono) delivered in UK only, or pick up from Brighton.
      Through gritted teeth I am selling my Flea Road Worn Jazz Bass. It's a long story, but I ended up buying two Road Worns at the same time, and I prefer the red one. I'd like to keep a stack-knob too, but my bank would disapprove and my wife would leave me.
      Nice dark rosewood board, faded shell pink lacquer, CS64 pups and weighs 4.1kg according to the bathroom scales.
      Full disclosure: This is a 2016 bass, but with a (genuine, unused) 2020 replacement body purchased from Stratosphere in the US [eBay listing here].
      It is 100% stock apart from:
      Kiogon solderless loom replacing the original pots and wiring * Genuine Fender brass external earthing strip (purely decorative) Genuine Fender Road Worn strap button on rear of headstock. * Knobs and plate are original, only pots and wiring are changed - shout if you'd like the originals included.
      You probably won't like my wussy light strings and cig-paper action, so allow for that. The neck is straight and the truss works just fine. All the electrical bits work just fine and sound ace.
      Here's the official spec page: https://shop.fender.com/en-GB/electric-basses/jazz-bass/artist-jazz-bass/flea-jazz-bass/0141020356.html
      Ask about any other stuff if you like. I'm open to offers but not silly ones, as I need to recoup some costs.
