Guild X-170 Blonde USA 1989

USA made Guild X-170 Blonde from 1989. The X-170 (Manhattan) is the successor of the original X-175, that was discontinued in the mid 1980s (the X-175 is back, in the new Newark series), which had been made since the 1950s. Although there are many detail differences, the main one is a slightly thinner body - 3" for the X-175 and 2.5" for the X-170. Which is good, in a way this still has the same tonal capabilities as the original X-175, but this one is less prone to feedback. Essentially this is a great jazz-box with vintage vibe, but due to the double humbuckers this is as versatile as a Les Paul, but you'll notice that fine acoustic 'boxiness' through it's amplified voice immediately. 

This one is in excellent condition. The back shows minor bucklerash at a certain incidence of light, the headstock overlay has some marks, the top shows that this guitar has been used. The only thing truly worth mentioning is that the pickup-ring on the side of the bridge has a small tear.
