    I am selling my Pilot Bass that I have used for the last year. I recently purchased a Warmoth neck for another bass and have not been playing this much. The bass has been played and has a few minor dings to show for it but is ready to go. The EMGs are nice and quiet and deliver a full range of tones.

    Solid color Guild Pilots are very light. This one comes in at right at 7 lbs! The bass is nice and comfy to play.

    I am asking $400 but please note that though the bass is light the case is not so shipping will be around $50. PM me if interested.

    Great Deal, these are fantastic Basses and used to cost good money back in the 80's.

    Any dings/impressions on the neck? Like stuff that your thumb would hit?

    There is a small nick on the neck that never bugged me. I figure a person can hit it with a lil sand paper and a lil finish and you'd be good to go. You can see the nick by the horn. The price is low for it is an older bass and does have a flaw on the body horn (you can see it in picture... the lil blue spec). There is no mechanical/electrical problems and I have used it for the last year with no problems. Thanks for the interest will try to load a few more pics.

    I almost forgot (the bass is boxed up ready to go) on the fingerboard edge on the 6th fret E side there is a dent. It has never bothered my playing and really only noticed it when I took the photos. I also thought I should give a better view of the body for the black hardware is worn. Relic effect from actual use.

    Thanks for looking,

    I believe everything is original. Checked the other models on Ebay and all the bridges look the same.
