    At last I've bought a new bass! It's a DeArmond Pilot Deluxe V, active thru neck, it's so beautiful. I got it for £325!!! Really pleased with it, good build quality, lovely wood, mahogany body wings and maple and mahogany neck(I think?). So nice. If I can get my digital camera to work I'll post a pic, that's how much I love it...

    Yay :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
  2. Sounds like a great deal! Post pics when you can.

    Well it's a good bass. The electronics seem pretty good. A lot of tonal variety, comes in mahogany or ash body, looks good, sounds good, nice tone. :D Great bass.
  7. Great bass - I almost bought the same one a couple months ago at Guitar Center. It was a lighter color(I didn't like), and I just couldn't get past that. If I saw yours I would have snatched it up. Nice one!
  8. Hey, thats cool. I didn't know DeArmond made a natural finish neck-thru bass. Me like.....

    Nice bass. I played a few of them & they were ALOT better than I expected.
