Fullerton Deluxe KILOTON


Explosive Power.

kiloton ~ a unit of explosive power equivalent to 1,000 tons of TNT.

What happens when you pack Leo Fender’s potent Magnetic Field Design bass humbucker into the sleek shape of his SB•2? The Fullerton Deluxe Kiloton: explosive power that’s easy to handle.

Kiloton’s silhouette is the most comfortable bass body ever created by Leo. It’s compact and pure, with every curve and contour perfectly executed. And now it’s carrying more firepower than ever, with Leo’s G&L Magnetic Field Design humbucker placed right in the sweet spot he specified back when the sign over our door still read CLF Research.

The Fullerton Deluxe Kiloton’s single MFD bucker fires without the aid of a preamp, while a 3-position series/split/parallel toggle harnesses the coils’ power. Simple volume and tone controls are devastatingly effective, revealing a wide range of textures Leo’s MFD bucker is famous for. What’s more, Kiloton is armed with a 6-bolt neck and Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock™ bridge to transfer all the energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument.

The Fullerton Deluxe Kiloton is a force of nature, wrought from Leo’s elements and ready for impact. Click the the Video Demo tab to hear it, then get to your G&L dealer to experience it.
