I got my new bass a week ago, a DeArmond Pilot Deluxe 6 string, maple/walnut neck through, mahogany body wings, active electronics with 3-band eq. I love it! although the bridge leaves a lot to be desired. anyone who is looking for a bass and is not familiar with DeArmond owes it to themselves to at least check them out. I do have one question, how do you remove and prevent fingernail scratches in mahogany?
