Guild X-170 BL Manhattan Blonde Westerly 1997

Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California.

This Guild X-170 BL Manhattan from 1997 is a beauty with nice flame everywhere.  The guitar was made in the Westerly, Rhode Island plant.  

It needed a dusting when it arrived.  When we got it cleaned up we found it to be in near mint condition, perhaps better.

The guitar plays perfectly with little wear to the frets and a straight neck.  The truss rod was checked to make sure there is room for future neck relief adjustments.

There are no repairs or issues, and the only change from original would be the strap buttons, which are Dunlops that work with a standard strap or one with their straplock.

The original pickups are Seymour Duncan made.

The original case is included.
