    For sale I have an awesome 1968 guild m85 II. I hate to sell this its one of my dream basses/my favorite instrument I've ever owned but I've been forced to make some tough decisions. The bass has the original bisonics and is one of the thick hollow ones. This bass is awesome and sounds great. Everything functions as it should. The only issues as far as I can tell is the one pot is a little touchy if you wiggle it starts to work again. The master volume knob has also been changed. The bass comes in the original hardshell case.

    This is a pretty rare bird and I haven't been able to find many of the hollow ones to gauge how to price it. Ive seen a couple solids go for over 2000 and the only hollow one I've found for sale on here was a later one and up for 3400. The serial number on this one is BB 138

    $3300 shipped and will entertain offers

    Thanks!
