Guild B-240E Archback Acoustic Bass Guitar

sku: GWB240E
Guild helped shape acoustic bass guitar design in the mid-1970s with the B-50, which featured a jumbo body shape, arched mahogany back, and a 30 3/4” scale length. These classic features are back with the B-240E, offering bassists a workhorse instrument with big tone and easy playability. Built with a solid Sitka spruce top over an arched mahogany back and mahogany sides, the B-240E will hold its own in acoustic jams, or it can be easily amplified through the onboard Guild/Fishman Sonitone Bass system.    More Details...
