I'll add another club to the list.  Current owner on of an L2500 and seriously interested in adding a Kiloton soon.

What a beauty!  I've always thought G&L basses were solid.

Thank you.  The L2000 and L2500 are the most versatile basses I've ever played.  Although they do have an onboard preamp the MFD pickups are so powerful I typically play only in the passive mode where I still have a choice of both parallel and series settings for each of the pickup options.

Build, fit and finish are top shelf and I believe G&L does some of the nicest 'burst finishes of anyone.  I also have a tobacco burst ASAT Special Telecaster that I'm equally pleased with.  That and the L Series Basses were among Leo Fenders last designs and I believe where Fender might be today had he never sold.

Just added a G&L Kiloton to the mix.  PBass kind of passive simplicity but the single MFD pickup set in the "sweet spot" and 3-way switching that provides Series, Parallel and Single Coil settings offer some unique voicings.

Update on the Kiloton.

Tonally it is very punchy and mid focused somewhat I like a Jazz Bass but far more aggressive due to the MFD pickup.  Knock down a brick wall and punch you in the chest aggressive.  I'm positive it will cut through even a mid heavy mix especially with the pickup run in series.  The three position selector also allows both coils in parallel and a single coil mode.

It's 100% passive but like others models with MFD pickups it hits the front end hard so it's best if played through a -10db padded input and the volume is pulled back slightly to say 75%-80%.  Then use whatever gain and master volume controls are available on the amp to set a good volume level and you'll still have room to add pickup volume when needed.

I picked up a set of Brite Flats from Jason and that's what's on it now.  This is my first experience with ground wounds.  With the lows boosted and mids pulled back a lot they seem to compliment the bass well.  Very articulate.  I also plan to try a set of Pressurewounds to see if it likes those even better.  They have typically been my go to string for all but my PBasses.

Year one update.

The original Oly White model had a truss rod issue.  The nut would not engage the rod so neck adjustments could not be made.  I exchanged it for an ash body Irish Ale model with a maple neck I'm actually enjoying more.  Strings are now GHS Pressurewounds.  They'll stay.

Just one more to get and I've already given you a sketch of the specs.  Should look a lot like this.

Oh damn.  Can't get pic to upload.
