OVERVIEW

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.

FEATURES
Laminate maple double-cutaway hollowbody

    Comments about Guild M-85 Bass:

    As a joke I asked for this for Christmas my Stepson bought it that day could have knocked me over with a feather, needless to say it's special
    Great playing bass right out of the box, and looks much better in person it has become my go to bass
    You will be proud to own it.
