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 Guild/Fishman Bass Sonitone system.
Built with a solid Sitka spruce top, and solid African mahogany back and sides, the B-140E features a bone 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.
