Actually its 21 years old, but its new to the family. I'm looking forward to recording it. Guild Pilot bass, 1985, active with EMG's a P and a J, bridge is the Guild version of a badass, Poplar body.. two volumes and a master tone. No frills, it weighs a hefty 7.5 lbs. and its one of those instruments thats very loud without being plugged in. In all my years , these always seem to be the ones that sound good. Its very punchy and clean sounding. Anyone have any anecdotes about these? More on it as time progresses. And later, there will be a complete report on the new guitar amp that came into the band a couple of months ago. This would be the Bogner Metropolitan. So far AWESOME!!! more later.peace........dadogg.
