This is a brand new, simply fantastic value acoustic bass from Guild's Westerly Collection.
"Guild redefined acoustic bass guitars in the mid-1970s with the introduction of the B-50, based on the ever-popular Guild jumbo shape. The B-140E carries on this tradition, providing an impressively loud tone that can be easily amplified with its Fishman Sonitone Bass pickup. Built with a solid Sitka spruce top, and solid African mahogany back and sides, the B-140E features an Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, NuBone nut and saddle, and mother-of-pearl rosette. This model also has a 1½” nut width on a vintage shaped Guild neck, iconic Chesterfield headstock emblem reminiscent of 1960s Guilds, period-correct tortoiseshell pickguard, and Guild’s new lightweight polyfoam case."
This bass feels so easy to play - the neck is manageable and it is very responsive - unlike some acoustic basses which can be a bit of a battle.
The finish is a lovely natural gloss. I couldn't believe the price when this bass arrived, we had to call and check twice that it wasn't some sort of mistake!
Comes in its lightweight Guild case.
