Guild has introduces the Westerly Collection, a series pays homage to the company’s early history of acoustic instruments. The lineup includes the B-140E acoustic bass guitar, which is based on the mid-70’s B-50 model.
Utilizing the Guild jumbo body shape, the bass is built with a solid Sitka spruce top, solid African mahogany back and sides, and an Indian rosewood fingerboard with a matching bridge. Its nut and saddle are made of NuBone while a mother-of-pearl rosette sits as a light accent. The mahogany neck is vintage shaped with a “C” profile and a nut width of 1 1/2 inches. For electronics, Guild fits the B-140E with a Fishman Sonitone Bass pickup.
The Guild B-140E will be available soon with a list price of $1,010.
