Vintage 1981 Guild B-301 White 34 Scale Bass + OHSC Case Made in USA Very Nice! Extremely cool and well preserved USA made Guild B-301 bass in very good condition for its 40 plus years of age. I think most folks wouldnt hesitate to list as excellent but I tend to grade on the conservative side.I dont think youll find one nicer than this. Bass weighs approximately 8 1/2 lbs. Bass frets were just polished and show hardly any wear at all. Rosewood fingerboard has just been oiled.
Truss rod functions as intended and neck is straight and bridge saddles have been intonated. The Grover tuners work well and are in great condition. There is some natural yellowing on the sides of the fingerboard and where neck joins the body. There are some light dings and scratches commensurate of age and use but nothing major to mention. I believe this is the original hardshell case although I dont see Guild branded on it anywhere.
The bass fits in the case nicely and there is a case key inside of an envelope marked Guild Bass. The case lid and interior are in great shape but the exterior the case does show some moderate wear and scuffs and scratches; the handle is missing and one of the latch clasps is bent and does not stay closed. I havent tried to straighten the clasp but it might be fixable. The case is actually pretty hefty and very sturdy. The bass is approximately 40 years old.The Guild serial numbers I found online for the B-301 bass show 1980 as the last set of numbers just before this range of numbers so Im guessing this is a 1981 or perhaps a 1982 model. This is a pre owned, vintage bass that will show areas of wear commensurate of age and use. Please see all pics and video for more details. The video demo is of this bass for sale. Search for Guild B-301 bass on YouTube and youll probably find my videos.
I took another video just showing the bass from all angles. If you need me to send links just message me and Ill send them.
