    For sale is my Guild Pilot Fretless. I bought this a few years ago here on TB and it has been lightly used ever since so I am borrowing the pics the seller send to me.

    The bass is in great shape. Only issues are save for a couple of small dings as pictured, one cap missing from a tuner as pictured, and some slight grooving on the G string from roundwounds, right around where the 7th fret would be.

    This bass is killer. Light weight, great balance, beautiful wood grains and brownish finish, and sweet sounding active EMG P/J pickups. Really fast neck too.

    I am asking $450 shipped or best offer. Would also consider trading depending on what you have to offer. EBMM SUB would be great but surprise me.

    Thanks.

    Bumping this up. Would do a straight trade for an EBMM sub.

    Will try to snap more pics tonight.

    Also taking offers.

    Thanks.

    Is that grooving on the G string purely cosmetic? If not can you describe how it affects the note there, if at all? Nice lookin bass, definitely interested.

    I will inspect more closely tonight. I pulled the bass out of virtual hibernation but my recollection is that the grooving was a little more than consmetic. I do not think it impacted tone but let me give it a thorough walk through when I photograph tonight and get back to you.

    Thanks for your interest.

    I've got this bass in a 5 string and it's a lined fretless in Blue and the flamed maple body.
    I put a Bartolini 3 band preamp in it and the tone is incredible!

    Thanks for the bump. Just curious-- with the Bart pre and the active pickups do you have an 18 volt thing going on now?

    Seems like that would sound dope!

    Yes 18volt thing is goin on and sounds great!
    Norik Renson of Renson Guitars in Studio City, CA did the work about 22 years ago... Still sounds great!
