Guild B-240EF (Fretless)

Brand: Guild
Stock Id: GUILD-B-240EF
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-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, the B-240EF boasts 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. This model also features 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.
