    I have a bass I bought about 20 yrs ago. It is flying v, white,neckthru not bolt on, the wood under is mahagony, 2 pickups one split. I was told it was a guild when I bought it.. there is no decal the headstock had been broken and repaired, it has flying v block inlays. Plays and sounds great.
    any ideas what it is? Thanks

    Yea, the general rule of thumb is "no pics, no bass".

    Sounds like a cool instrument though.
  4. At least as far as we're concerned.
  5. I had one of those years ago.
    It played and sounded nice, a bit awkward sitting though.
    The neck if I remember correctly was comfortable to play a tiny bit wider than my jazz with a c profile.

    It was fun and different

    I gave it to my son who eventually traded it for a Gibson Melody Maker.

    Sounds like a Guild By Burnside Bass.

    See them pop up on ebay from time to time.

    That does look like a Dearmond, but the one in mention is more of a Randy Rhoads type Flying V. The one you posted a picture of does look pretty cool... and probably sounds better.. with the two darkstar type pickups... versus the no name P style pickups that are in the Randy Rhoads type V's.
