G&L Introduces Tribute Series Kiloton Fretless Bass

G&L Guitars Tribute Series Fretless Kiloton Bass

G&L is rounding out 2021 with another new release as they’ve announced a fretless option for the Kiloton Bass. The Tribute Series instrument’s pickup configuration makes it a great fit for fretless playing, the company writes.

“The Kiloton Bass is a hard punching bass with a silken touch thanks to Leo Fender’s MFD pickup with its 3-position switch offering series/split/parallel options,” they write. “This, along with the perfect pickup placement, make this model perfect as a fretless.”

The fretless Kiloton will come in a three-tone sunburst finish with a poplar body and swamp ash top. Other features include a tortoise pickguard, a lined fretless rosewood fingerboard, and G&L hardware.
