Okay, a few years ago I ended up with the first Guild Pilot 5 string made. The serial number is BK 100001. Seriously. It's a fretless, but I don't think it started out as one. I don't have the whole story on it, never had the chance to ask; that's a bit of a sad story in itself. But here I am with a sort of a collector's item that I'm probably not going to play. I've held on to it a bit for sentimental reasons, a bit for collector's reasons, a bit 'cause I thought I'd eventually work on playing fretless. That last reason has turned out to be a bust. So I'm inquiring here at TB to see if there would be any interest in the bass. I see the classifieds, and know Pilots aren't moving much these days. I'm just curious to see what you all think about the possible value of this bass. Would appreciate any and all feedback! It's blue, looks like a 34" scale, EMG JJ pickups. It appears to me the frets were ground down rather than pulled, and the fretboard done in epoxy. Rather nice job, very smooth and clean. The body is pretty straight on the top; the back has some significant buckle scratches. Neck is nice. My digital scale has it at 8 lbs. 8 oz. Has original hard-shell Guild case.
