Vintage style and loads of low end with its hollow body and "Bi-Sonic" bass pickup.
The companion to Guild's M-75 Aristocrat guitar, the M-85 Bass boasts authentic mid-'60s style with a compact semi-hollow body and big "Bi-Sonic" bass pickup that together create the sonic boom of an instrument twice its size.
The single-cutaway body measures 2.75" deep and a mere 13.5" across the lower bout, with an arched spruce top and maple back and sides. The body also features elegant ivory white body binding, black/white purfling, partial center-block bracing and dual finger rests. This distinctive bass also features a 30.75" scale length, bound three-piece mahogany neck with a vintage-style "soft U" profile, 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with 12" radius and pearloid dot inlays, volume and tone controls, combo bridge/tailpiece with rosewood saddles, Grover® tuning machines, nickel hardware and cool Jet Black gloss finish. Includes plush-lined hard-shell case.
