Guild B-140E Westerly Collection Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar w/ Case
Guild Westerly Collection B-140E Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar
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 1960's Guilds, period-correct tortoiseshell pickguard, and Guild' lightweight polyfoam case.
