A Closer Look at the X-175 Manhattan Pickups

The Guild DE-1F Dog Ear single coil pickups have been offered in many electric guitars throughout Guild’s history. Originally known as “Frequency-Tested”, these P90-style pickups were manufactured by Franz in New York. The Newark St. DE-1F is a faithful reproduction offering the classic tone profile of the original.
