The Guild BT-258E Deluxe 8-string Baritone combines Guild's historically large jumbo body shape and their legacy of pressed back construction to boast a deep, full-frequency baritone voice. The two octave strings add sparkle that allow the guitar to project a sublime blend of low-end harmony with enchanting higher frequencies for a rich, harp-like sound.
The arched rosewood back projects whole low-frequencies, while the solid spruce top ensures the high-frequency octave strings blend in gorgeously for a symphonic tone. Its range means that the BT-258E is ideal for playing in an ensemble or for playing standalone. Notably on this model are the deluxe appointments including rosewood back and sides, bound neck and body, Fishman GT-1 pickup system, and a perfectly glossed polyurethane finish, making sure it not only sounds fantastic but looks great too.
Comes with a gig bag.
