1980 Guild B 50 Acoustic Bass with Pick Up

The B-50 was introduced in 1976, and appears to be based on Guild’s J-50 Jumbo style acoustic guitars. It has a traditional neck joint, a 31.5" scale with a split saddle (for improved intonation), and an arched back and body that is more than 6” deep at its biggest, it mimics the proportions and build quality of a great acoustic guitar. This 1980 Guild B 50 Acoustic Bass with Pick Up is in good condition with surface scratches and dents on the top, back and sides as shown in the detailed photos below. It has minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.

This guitar not only sounds great; it’s very loud. Some later Guild ABGs have had smaller bodies and no split saddle, as a pickup is much easier to install in a single bridge piece.

It features a solid Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides. It has an unbound East Indian rosewood fingerboard inlaid with 8 mother of pearl dots (with white ivoroid dotmarkers on the bass edge), and 20 frets total. It has the “rooftop” pearloid inlaid “Guild” logo at top of the unbound black, ultra large multi-cut peghead and below that an inlaid pearloid Chesterfield.

The Tuners are nickel-plated with big “elephant ears,” open gears and each bears the “Guild” logo. The top is bordered in 6 plies of thin black and white purfling, the sides and back in single ply crème. The bridge is East Indian rosewood and the bridge pins are crème plastic, each with a black dot, and so is the end pin and, the strap pin at the center of the top of the neck heel.
