Guild 1978 catalogue. page 10. Details of the Guild B-301 and Guild B-302 longscale bass guitars. The difference is the extra pickup on the B-302. Like the guitar equivalent, the Guild S-300A, both models were available (as B-301A, B-302A) in natural ash with maple necks. Fretless models were available at no extra cost, and the B-302 was available wired for stereo. The B-302A is illustrated on the back cover of this catalog.
B-301 was the first in Guild's new generation of solid body guitars and basses - so successful, we followed it with our double pick-up B-302.
Both have the long, 34" (86.4 cm) scale, wide frets and curved fingerboard that rock bassists are using. Plus a new bass pick-up. And a new solid brass bridge/tailpiece that gives you perfect intonation.
1978 US list prices for these basses (September 1st, 1978) were as follows: B-301, $405; B-301A $445, B-302 $475, B-302A $515.
