Guild X-175 Manhattan Special
(1.399,00 € Pz)
The Guild X-175 Manhattan has an arched spruce top – an important ingredient in any acoustic instrument—and that’s really how I think of this. It starts as an acoustic instrument, then it goes from there.
Arched maple back and maple side. 3-piece neck. That same vibe they were doing in the 1950s and 60s.
These authentic DeArmond Dynasonic pickups really have a thing. That vintage, old-school, rich, jazzy, rockabilly tone is all there. [Plays chords] But those pickups are just so rich! There’s such a tone there.
[Activates bridge pickup] Then with just the bridge – you’ve got a little bit of twang. Love the in-between tone.
These guitars were used back in the day when there really weren’t effects. But there’s so much personality there. I love the Bigsby-eque, Guild vibrato tailpiece. I’ve been whangin’ on this thing pretty hard and it seems to stay in tune.
