Hi Folks,

Yesterday I found a Guild DeArmond Pilot PJ bass
with a nice soft case and a stand for $50 on CL. It
had electrical problems which I fixed. It’s an Asian
made Guild bass produced after Fender took over
Guild,



It had the most wonderful 22 fret jazz size neck. I
recently paid $110 for a Mighty Mite neck that was
not near this nice.

I decided to put it on my Affinity with Original Fender
62 pups. I found that I was going to have to move
the bridge, which would bring the pickup closer to
the bridge.



It sounds more punchy, but still retains good bass
quality. I like it. I have other fine P basses with the
more regular P bass sound. Now I got one that’s
more aggressive,











There is a small gap at the bottom of the neck
socket, but not bad,



This is a really cool bass folks.

I’m tickled pink,

AWESOME!!!

Unique DIY'd basses are coooler than ANYTHING that comes out of any factory. Does everything Inotate well enought?

Also... first time i've heard 62 P pups described as 'aggressive'!
"Punk Rock should mean freedom, liking and accepting anything that you like, as sloppy as you want, as long as it's good and has passion."

I had to move the bridge 5/8ths inch toward the neck.
That allowed for proper intonation. It's a 34 inch scale.
All you have to do is get the center of the bridge at 34
inches. If you go 5/8ths in the other direction, it gets
real warm and muddy.

What's harder is getting the alignment right..... I got it
right where I wanted it.

You know how a P bass can get reduced to a faint deep
bottom?

Well this one is more in your face. I can't wait to jam with
it.
