    Looks like a pilot to me, but I've never seen one with a pickguard. Didn't they go to a J-J pickup with the DeArmond name? The owner thinks it's about a '95. Serial number BE100398. Is this an old pilot or a new one? Or a completely different model?

    It is more like an '85. That was the first version of the Pilot for Guild. Jerry Peek, who played with Steve Morse around '86 had one, it was yellow with a black pick guard. I still regret selling mine.
