A classic

Kuzulka, 04.04.2018
Strong, classic, semi hollow, short-scale sound. Sexy as a bitch heat. Light as a feather. Comfy as your old favourite shoes. The only cons, if any, is that the headstock weight a little. But that don't result on being uncomfortable o unplayable.

Summing up, if Guild had made them fretless, now I would had two of them.

Big sound, easy to play

mroc, 06.04.2016
A fine and easy to play, a very big sound that pulse well (I lowered the microphone pads to domesticate it), a good balance in standing play (a little heavy).

I like this type of low bass / medium scale. The best for my taste is the Warwick Star Bass but the Guild complements it well (the Gibson Midtown sounds good but it is difficult to play standing, the Hagstrom Viking is very pleasant to play but it sounds a bit dull ...)

A flat on the Guild: the rosewood bridges are fragile and difficult to replace (one of the bridges fell flat in two pieces when I changed the strings, I first asked Thomann who never answered me , Then I tinkered a piece of rosewood and finally I found a US site that sells: guildbassparts.com, $ 40 the set of 4 bridges rosewood, 68¤ copper ...)
