Overview

Classic archtop tone in a limited-edition finish.

The precedent for hollowbody aesthetic and tone, the X-175 Manhattan Special looks as good as it sounds. With its gracefully sculpted and richly resonant hollowbody, arched spruce top, and rock-solid three-piece neck, it exemplifies the quality building of the Guild Manhattan models of the 1950s and ‘60s. The secret to this model’s iconic tone lies in the authentic DeArmond Dynasonic neck and bridge pickups, providing crystal-clear highs and a full, round low-end—the makings of the iconic tones of rockabilly and blues from the 1950s on forward. Complimenting the tonal pallet of the Dynasonic pickups, the X-175 Manhattan Special features a Guild Vibrato tailpiece for expressive playing. Other premium features include fully bound body, neck, F-holes and headstock, mother-of-pearl block fretboard inlays and a hardshell case.
