    Note that the Pilot bass that musicansfriend.com has for $99 is the Standard model without the 3 band EQ. I got a Pilot Plus 5 string from samash.com last month, and I must say, for $160 I felt like I was robbing them. It is an incredable instrument for that price.

    i got the same thing. a new set of strings and a little setup and i've got something i would not be scared of picking up and using for a whole show (that is, if anything ever happened to my warwick ;) )
