This early 1980s model X-702 bass is one of the most distinctive and uniquely designed pieces we’ve ever seen here at the shop! The body has a one of a kind off-set body with sharp corners and an long pointy upper bout that practically screams “heavy metal”! The X-700 series (the single pickup 701 and the dual pickup 702) were produced for a handful of years, from 1982 to 1984, and are quite hard to come by especially in the rarer “sparkle” finishes. This one sports the Black Sparkle finish which seems designed to really pop under stage lights. Honestly the pictures don't do it justice; the only way to take it in in all its multi-color sparkley glory is to see it in person! Other than the futuristic design and unique finish choice, the X-702’s closest bass relative is the Guild B-300 series. Both basses sport Guild single coil pickups, a BT-4 bridge, and a comparable feel especially on the neck. It has a mahogany neck featuring 20 frets on a rosewood finger board and a nut width of 1 5/8th”. The bass is a longer scale at 34”. Despite its odd off-set shape it has a surprisingly good balanced feel in playing position and weighs in at about 9 ½” lbs. Cosmetically it is in impressive condition with only some minor playwear around the headstock and light wear on the body. It has been set-up by our in-house tech and plays phenomenally. Whether you are an avid collector of the weirdest guitars you can find or just a lover of the excellent basses coming out of the Westerly, RI Guild factory in the later ‘70s/early ‘80s you won’t want to pass up a rare opportunity to be the proud owner of this amazing bass! Plus just look at how sparklely it is! Includes original Guild hard shell case.
