How to create the perfect bass guitar? You need to put a powerful bass humbucker on the elegant shape of the SB2! That's what Leo Fender decided, and that's how the new G&L Kiloton Obass was born! She has the most comfortable body Leo has ever made. It is compact and with every contour and curve perfectly executed.

The Magnetic Field Design humbucker is positioned in the most ideal position for good low end and perfect readability. Whereas a three position series/split/parallel control switch uses the power of the coils. Simple volume and tone controls are incredibly effective, revealing the wide array of textures that mfd pickups are known for. The Kiloton features a 6-bolt neck and a Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock bridge to transfer all the energy directly to the end of the body for an incredibly resonant instrument.

The Tribute series is the youngest in the G&L lineup. However, they totally nailed it in terms build quality and, importantly, original USA components. Pickups and bridges on all guitars of the Tribute series are exactly the same as on top American instruments.

Also, you have to keep in mind that wood is a living material. Guitar’s geometry changes a little over time, adjusting to temperature and humidity, so there is no setup that can last forever. To save you a headache, we have a free setup service for our instruments! If you feel that something is off you can bring it to us so that we can return everything to it’s perfect original state.

For online orders we manually pack each guitar into a ton of wraps and carton and also have full insurance for all our shippings. So that you wouldn’t worry that something might happen on the way.

Saddle Lock Bridge

The G&L Saddle-Lock™ bridge epitomizes Leo Fender's innovative approach to guitar engineering. Its standout feature is a large protrusion on the underside, precisely fitted into the guitar body's routed area, optimizing contact for enhanced string vibration transfer. This improved energy transfer results in significantly enhanced sustain, surpassing traditional fixed bridge designs. By anchoring the bridge firmly to the body, G&L achieves unparalleled resonance and sustain, elevating their instruments' tonal richness and depth. Combined with Leo Fender's saddle design for minimizing string breakage and ensuring consistent performance, the Saddle-Lock bridge offers reliability and sonic excellence. In essence, it reflects Leo Fender's legacy of innovation and dedication to providing musicians with instruments of uncompromising quality and performance.
