Santa Monica, CA – Meet Guild’s new Jumbo Junior Bass, a compact four-string that checks the boxes for robust acoustic bass tone and portability. Its solid Sitka spruce top and arched flamed maple back mirror the tonewoods that have been used in upright bass construction for centuries, producing 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 deep voice from the Jumbo Junior Bass can be amplified or recorded using its onboard Fishman Sonitone Bass 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 (D’addario) nylon-core phosphor bronze strings. A Guild deluxe padded gig bag is included.
