Guild Newark Street X-175B Manhattan

New from Guild – an extraordinary instrument for the swinging soloist and technician, Guild’s X-175B Manhattan is a masterpiece of the guitar maker’s art. It presents the same exceptional appointments as its brother, the X-175 Manhattan, including a gracefully sculpted hollow body, rock-solid three-piece neck and electrifying dual single-coil pickups, but also features the addition of a Guild Bigsby vibrato tailpiece and is available in a handsome Blonde finish.
