1978 Guild B302F fretless bass
1978 Guild B302F fretless The B302F is the fretless version of the Guild B302, which, along with the B301 were Guilds new bass offerings for the late 1970s. Guild hadn't really came up with a innovative bass design since the low-selling Jetstar of the mid-1960s. This is not to say they didn't make fantastic basses; far from it, but the Starfire, JS and Bluesbird (M-85) basses of the late 1960s - mid 1970s could all be said to be derivatives of designs by Gibson (the EB2, EB0/3 and Les Paul bass respectively). So the B301/302 series was something new, not just in looks; it had a new design bridge and pickups too, although the actual construction (mahogany body, set mahogany neck) was traditional Guild. This bass paved the way for many new bass designs into the 1980s, some very unusual indeed. Have a listen to this bass here.
1967 Guild Capri CE-100
1967 Guild Capri CE-100 A closer look at a 1967 Guild CE-100. The Capri was a full-depth archtop, and Guild's first guitar with a Florentine cutaway - and a very sucessful model too; staying in the Guild catalogue in one form or another from 1958 until 1984. Stylistic similarities between models such as the ES-125C and ES-175 can be made, but this guitar is every bit as good quality as the better known Gibsons.

The greatest bass we've ever built, with everything you want for the way you play today! Long-scale curved fingerboard. Wide frets. New solid brass bridge/tailpiece for perfect intonation. New double pick-ups. And a comfortable shape. Even more! Ash body and maple neck, as illustrated, on the B-302A. Fretless fingerboard no extra charge. Available wired for stereo. Or left-handed. At Guild, one success follows another. Because we're in tune with today's players and what they need.

I had a couple of these basses that I fell in LOVE wtih !! One of them, though, has an extra switch by the pick-up switch and the trust rod cover (model number) says B-302 S. can anybody tell me if they know what the "S" stands for on the model number !?? I have not seen another like it at all, could it be a rare edition B-302 ??

Does this guitar have stereo wiring? It was an option on the B-302 (see the relevant 1978 catalogue page here) although is by no means common. Certainly an interesting (and rare) variation of this bass.
