Guild S-100 bass w/carved oak leaves (Chicago)

I always thought these were super cool.  I have no idea how they sound; I’m guessing “massive” given the huge pickups and the mahogany body.  But to make production bass with all that carving is pretty wild.

I remember seeing more of them, and I recall the market price being higher back 5 or 6 years ago.  Nowadays, they seem pretty scarce.

And those are oak leaves, not maple.  The acorns give it away….
