Guild X175B w/Bigsby Manhattan in Blonde - Pre-Owned

Product Code:
Show description

In exceptional condition and having only recieved very light use, this is the fantastic Guild X-175B Manhattan in blonde, with a Bigsby fitted.

With classic rockabilly looks, this is a fantastic quality and value archtop.

Its vintage-look coil pickups produce the ultimate jazz/rockabilly/rock and roll tones, and it plays easily, with a fast neck and good action. This guitar is built from maple and spruce, which is shown off by the natural blonde finish which will age beautifully, and the substantial high quality Guild Bigsby tremolo is awesome!

Other premium features include a Guild Adjusto-Matic bridge with rosewood base, vibrato/tremolo bar tailpiece, Grover Sta-Tite® tuning machines, unbound F holes, black / ivory white purfling and nickel hardware. It is currently strung with rounds but could easily suit a set of flats for a great jazz tone.

Comes with a fitted hard case.

See the link below for a video demo of this very guitar!

 

As Guild say: "An extraordinary instrument for the swinging soloist and technician, Guild’s X-175B Manhattan is a masterpiece of the guitar maker’s art. It presents the same exceptional appointments as its brother, the X-175 Manhattan, including a gracefully sculpted hollow body, rock-solid three-piece neck and electrifying dual single-coil Franz P90 Dog Ear pickups, but also features the addition of a Guild vibrato tailpiece and is available in a handsome blonde finish."
