    I recently purchased a 1991 Guild Pilot but the case was in very bad shape. I have looked all over to find an extra long case for the bass. Anyone has any suggestion where I should look?? Will need something at least 52 inches long.

    Thank you

    What's extra long about it? I fit mine in a standard aftermarket Gator case meant for a Fender Jazz.

    Finding an original case is tough and usually not in great shape.

    Nice gig bags also an option. They're not oversized basses.

    There is also a Guild Pilot Bass club thread if you want to post there too.

    EDIT: Link to club thread Guild Pilot bass club?

    The pilot itself is 49" long. So, I am looking for a hardshell case at least 52" long. I always prefer hardshell case for better protection.

     
  4. I have a Pilot Plus 5. A TKL molded plastic Jazz Bass hardshell case fits it perfectly.

    Hmm beats me. I have 4 Pilots now and they are Jazz sized, slightly smaller.

    Maybe @Flashback Bass or @nalapit13 would know more, they seem to be pretty expert in Pilots.

    Welcome to TalkBass, I've mentioned two very knowledgeable people in my last post and they may reply here. If you're able to upload a picture of your bass, that would help sort it out.

    Cheers.

    I have one of my pilots in a gator case, it fits fine. I never had a problem putting a pilot in a case.

    You could bring you pilot down to your local music store and see if it fits in any of the cases the have in inventory.

    I tried. I am in Vancouver and I brought the pilot to Long & McQuade and Tom Lee, they have nothing. I have been looking online for anything that's longer than 52", so far, no luck.

    Post a pic of your pilot. Let’s see which headstock it has.
