Guild's X175 has been around in various incarnations since about 1953. Guild's new X175 special adds DeArmond Dynasonic single coil pickups, f-hole and headstock binding, a Bigsby and a satin metallic blue finish!
The 175 is a 17" wide fully hollow electric archtop with a 24 3/4" scale, medium jumbo frets, mahogany neck, laminated spruce top and laminated maple back and sides. Comes with a nice TKL hardshell case!
The DeArmond Dynasonic pickups are very twangy, though powerful and meaty single coils that excel with clean and semi-driven sounds – twang, spank, shimmer, jangle and note separation. From Duane Eddy to Johnny Marr, they're a classic sound you'll love.
