Celebrating 50 years of a pivotal band
During the psychedelic '60s few bands came to define their genre as strongly as The Byrds. Underneath their multi-part vocal harmonies and layered 12-string electric guitar work was Hillman and his Guild semi-hollow bass, laying down the low end for hits such as "Mr. Tambourine Man", "Eight Miles High" and "The Times They are A Changing". Guild re-created the vintage Starfire™ bass Chris used with the Byrds and adorned it with an inlaid the Byrds logo at the 12th fret. Join Guild in celebrating The Byrds's legacy with this signature Byrds bass.
Powerful, low tone via a Guild BS-1 BiSonic humbucking pickup
The sound of a vintage Guild bass is instantly identifiable, thanks in large part to the BS-1 BiSonic humbucking pickups they used. The BS-1 has a large cult following and has been copied and reissued by many pickup manufacturers attempting to capture the powerful low-end thump the originals are known for. Now you can get a real deal BS-1 BiSonic sound direct from Guild in the Chris Hillman Byrds Bass.
Vintage construction for vintage thump
Everything about the construction of this bass guitar lends itself to punchy, low-frequency thump. Its shorter 30.75" scale length and flatwound strings keep the attack from overpowering your sound. And its semi-hollow construction and rosewood bridge saddles ensure plenty of unmistakable vintage sound. The Guild Chris Hillman Byrds Bass enables warm, woody tones that anchor the song.
