In the mid-1970s, Guild pioneered acoustic bass guitar design with the introduction of the B-50 model, which featured a jumbo body shape, arched mahogany back, and an easy to play, 30 3/4” scale length. Guild has reintroduced these vintage features with the new Westerly Collection B-240E & B-240EF, offering bassists a workhorse acoustic instrument with big tone that plays with ease.
Built with a solid Sitka spruce top over an arched mahogany back and mahogany sides, these acoustic basses boast an impressively loud tone that will hold its own during most acoustic jams. It can also be easily amplified with its onboard Guild/Fishman Bass Sonitone system. The B-240EF features a fretless pau ferro fingerboard with maple fret lines, providing a spectrum of sounds ranging from a mellow upright bass vibe to bright and growly Jazz fusion tones. The B-240E & B-240EF also feature a pau ferro bridge, slim C shape neck profile, 1 5/8” bone nut and bone saddle, tortoiseshell pickguard, and a mother-of-pearl rosette. A Guild deluxe padded gig bag is included. Available in Natural satin finish.
