From Guild:

Meet the Jumbo Junior Bass, a compact four-string that checks the boxes for robust acoustic bass tone and portability. We chose a solid Sitka spruce top and arched flamed maple back to mirror the tonewoods that have been used in upright bass construction for centuries, resulting in a clear, tight bass tone that is impressive for its reduced size. The back, sides and neck are finished in a satin antique blonde finish, which adds a rich depth and unique character to the wood’s figure.

The Jumbo Junior Bass’s deep voice can be amplified or recorded using its onboard Guild AP-1 Active Acoustic Piezo pickup system with built in volume and tone controls. Other standout features include an ebony fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, mother-of-pearl rosette and Guild peak headstock logo, tortoiseshell pickguard, and nylon-core phosphor bronze strings.

Guild Jumbo Junior Bass

Started playing bass as a pandemic project. With little previous stringed instrument experience (as a keyboard player for most of my life), I initially found the unfamiliar left-hand stretches and bends made progress difficult. The Jumbo Jr's short scale and low string tension have jump-started my playing; I can practice for longer periods without fatigue and discomfort. Also loving the convenience of an acoustic / electric instrument. The Jumbo Jr. is always ready-to-go, with adequate unplugged volume to keep up with my acoustic guitar-playing friends; when plugged in, the on-board pickup easily delivers a pleasant amplified sound. Happy camper. CME sales folks were pleasant and helpful, too!
