    Guild Pilot Bass in stunning amberburst over a premium flamed maple body. Made in the US before Fender or DeArmond owned Guild, this bass dates from the mid '80s- 1983 I think. Model SB-602? It is all original and in Excellent condition!

    Top notch materials and hand made build quality throughout. EMG active Precision and Jazz pickups give you both the classic P-Bass and J-Bass sounds. Guild Badass Bridge, Grover Tuners, bone nut, and Schaller Strap Locks (black locks for your strap are included). Had the Guild straight-pull knife headstock (not the pointy one).

    Includes original Guild hard shell case.

    This is an excellent example of a 32 year old vintage bass that is getting hard to find in this near new condition.

    Made famous by Daryl Jones with Sting, Gary tallent of the E Street Band, Aimee Mann, Ben Orr of The Cars, Jaco Pastorius, and many others!

    As a former Pilot owner these basses have a great, fast neck and are worth triple the price. Sad that they were discontinued. GLWTS.

    Dang Pilots always go too low for what they are. I have the 5 in same flame/color and it is killer. Bump 'cause I think that headstock was from 87or 88.
