X-175 Manhattan Special Faded White
Series: Newark St. Collection
The precedent for hollow body aesthetic and tone, the X-175 Manhattan Special looks as good as it sounds. With its gracefully sculpted and richly resonant hollow body, arched spruce top, and rock-solid three-piece neck it exemplifies the quality building of the Guild Manhattan models of the 1950s and ‘60s. Features special edition Gold and White DeArmond Dynasonic neck and bridge pickups, providing crystal clear highs and a full, round low-end - the makings of the iconic tones of rockabilly and blues from the 1950s on forward. Complimenting the tonal pallet of the Dynasonic pickups, the X-175 Manhattan Special features a Guild Vibrato Tailpiece and Tune-o-Matic Bridge with roller saddles for improved tuning stability. Other premium features include a fully bound body, neck, F-holes, headstock, mother-of-pearl block fretboard inlays, and a hardshell case. Available in a limited-run Faded White Finish with a special edition GLR pickguard.
