New Bass Day


Recommended Posts

It’s been a REALLY long time since I’ve seen one of these posts, so I’m proud to be the one to break the ice again. And I’m doubly proud to announce that I acquired this new fish from Dr Sweet Willie himself! 

G&L Kiloton 5 in a custom config which I believe is no longer available. Matching headstock in satin black, ebony fretboard. Alder body, maple neck, modern C profile, bone nut. I’ve seen pictures of William playing it live, but I see no dings or even scratches.


And with this purchase, I’m done buying basses. I have a 4 string P, a 5 string Jazz, and a 4 string fretless Jazz. With this MM style, I can now cover all the bases I personally want to cover.F9FDA2F2-D0EC-4F32-8822-CBC41DCEEC78.thumb.jpeg.5b9726cec7c71c4758cb0d3989fe336c.jpeg

"For instance" is not proof.

Awesome! That's the one I tried to buy while working temporarily in North Carolina last winter, but it became unavailable so I settled for a swamp ash body with flame maple neck and fingerboard instead. The one you got is still on my radar though, possibly as a fretless model.


This bass records very well BTW. I used it on an album project a couple of months ago and was quite impressed by how it sits in the mix. I use D'addario flats on mine. It takes well to any type of playing.

Hey - keep an eye on the neck.  At this point it's probably fine, but a luthier I know has said that he's seen repairs on warped G&L necks.
Looks SWEET (as you'd expect from Willie).
