Dearmond Pilot bass

 

This bass was the resurrection of the Guild Pilot from the ’80s, manufactured in Korea under the Dearmond brand name in the early 2000s.

It features an ash body, dual active humbucker pickups with active eq (bass, mid, treble) blend control (neck/bridge), and master volume.

The neck is 35″ scale, and has a similar width and profile as a modern Fender Jazz bass.

The nut was replaced about a year ago with a natural bone nut. It’s super comfortable to play, fairly light weight, and has a very “organic” tone despite the active pickups.
