Guild introduces a very special limited edition run of the M-85 II Bass, which doubles the power and performance of its mid-'60s-style single-pickup precursor with two big Bi-Sonic pickups and especially elegant appointments.

The compact Aristocrat TM-style hollow body has a single cutaway and a laminated spruce arched top with parallel tone bar bracing, mahogany back and sides and stately black- and-white binding. The unbound three-piece mahogany-maple-mahogany neck has a comfortable profile and a 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets and mother-of-pearl dot inlays. Other premium features of this distinctive bass include volume and tone control knobs for each pickup, upper- bout three-way toggle pickup selector switch, two-way mini-toggle switch on lower bout for low-end roll-off, bone nut, combo bridge/ tailpiece with rosewood saddles, headstock with two-on-a-side Gotoh® tuners and vintage- style "Chesterfield" inlay, nickel hardware, and nitrocellulose lacquer finish in classic Cherry Red. Hard-shell case included.
