Guild B-240E & B-240EF Fretless Acoustic Bass Demos


collapse expand iconDescription

The Guild Jumbo B-240E gives bassists a workhorse acoustic instrument that plays with ease and delivers big tone. The Guild B-50 acoustic bass guitar dates to the mid-1970s models that featured the jumbo body shape, arched mahogany back, and an easy-to-play 30 3/4” scale length. The Guild Jumbo B-240E acoustic-electric is an extension of that popular series, designed for bass players. Features of the Guild Jumbo B-240E include a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, which when combined create incredible acoustic tone. Further amplifying that acoustic tone is the onboard Fishman-designed electronics.

Short-Scale Bass Offers Comfortable Playability

With a shorter 30 3/4” scale length, the Guild Jumbo B-240E is a very comfortable and easy acoustic bass guitar to play. Pick it up once and you’ll likely never want to put it down. The slim C-shape neck profile also makes it easier to reach the upper frets. The Guild Jumbo B-240E also features a Pau Ferro fingerboard and bridge, and a bone nut and bone saddle. The package is complete with a natural satin finish.

Spruce and Mahogany Tonewood Combination

The Guild Jumbo B-240E features mahogany back and sides combined with a solid spruce top for acoustic tone that is unmatched. In addition, the Jumbo B-240E features Guild’s signature arched back design, which produces great volume and projection, long sustain, and a lush, full sound.

Fishman Electronics Amplify Your Acoustic Sound

The Guild Jumbo B-240E features onboard Fishman electronics to amplify that full acoustic tone. When you really want to be heard, just connect your Guild to your favorite amplifier, PA system or recording DAW and play away. A case is sold separately.
