2020 Guild X-175 Manhattan Special - Malibu Blue


This one may be pre-owned, but it's only a couple of years young and in excellent condition. The guitar will ship set-up and ready to play along with original hardshell case and case candy.

"The X-175 Manhattan Special archtop is a stellar representation of Guild quality and value. This vintage-styled jazz box is primed for rich tone and great playability, featuring a crisp maple body topped with nuanced spruce for enhanced clarity and detail. The Manhattan Special's multi-ply mahogany/maple neck plays like a modernized classic, and its zesty DeArmond DynaSonic pickups twang, snarl, and howl with the best of them. Even better, the X-175's expressive vibrato tailpiece gives you a taste of that classic wiggle-stick wobble, all without the intonation issues of lesser designs. Take it from guitarists at Sweetwater: if you're after a modern guitar that can get you true rockabilly soul and a host of clean and dirty hollowbody tones, it's hard to top the value you get in the Guild X-175 Manhattan Special."
