We’ll be in Nashville this week for Summer NAMM, where we’re debuting the latest additions to the Guild line! We’re showing some love to the low end this summer, with a handful of new bass offerings. Keep scrolling to see and hear more from these latest Guild offerings!
We’ve expanded on the best selling Starfire Bass II and now offer it in three new colors–Emerald Green, Cherry Red & Black. This dual-pickup semi-hollow bass guitar brings additional sonic options to one of Guild’s most iconic models. The addition of the BiSonic BS-1 neck pickup on the Starfire Bass II gives bassists a warmer, smooth sound for added tonal flexibility. This double cutaway bass guitar features an arched laminate mahogany top and back, and mahogany sides, dual Guild BS-1 pickups, individual volume, tone, and master volume knobs, and a pickup selector switch. A clear, high gloss finish highlights this bass guitar’s natural beauty.
Meet the Jumbo Junior Bass, a compact four-string that checks the boxes for robust acoustic bass tone and portability. We chose a solid Sitka spruce top and arched flamed maple back to mirror the tonewoods that have been used in upright bass construction for centuries, resulting in a clear, tight bass tone that is impressive for its reduced size. The back, sides and neck are finished in a satin antique blonde finish, which adds a rich depth and unique character to the wood’s figure.
The Jumbo Junior Bass’s deep voice can be amplified or recorded using its onboard Guild AP-1 Active Acoustic Piezo pickup system with built in volume and tone controls. Other standout features include an ebony fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, mother-of-pearl rosette and Guild peak headstock logo, tortoiseshell pickguard, and nylon-core phosphor bronze strings. A Guild deluxe padded gig bag is included.
