An incredible value in a USA made archtop! Guild is well known for offering players excellent instruments at unbelievable prices. This X-150 is no exception. An early Corona, Ca (it is rumored that early Corona instruments were made in the Custom Shop)  made example, this one shows top notch build quality and materials. The hollow body is made from flamed laminated maple. The mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearloid block inlays. A single neck position humbucker dishes out warm tone. A trapeze tailpiece, floating bridge and Grover tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is a gorgeous vintage sunburst. A very nice guitar. Many players would take a Guild over a Gibson or Gretsch citing better quality and tone. I'm a huge Guild fan. There's no better value in a USA made archtop!

This Guild plays great and has excellent tone. The neck is straight, the frets are good and action is low. The pickup sounds warm and does great for jazz, blues or rock. Everything works as it should. This is a nice used guitar. It shows light to moderate pick and clearcoat scratches. Very nice. Comes in original hardshell case.

Guild no longer offers any electric archtops. A real shame really as they were one of the last bargains out there. Many players have discovered the merits of this great company. If this were a Gibson guitar, the price would roughly be double and this one easily matches or exceeds Gibson quality. A great deal in my opinion.
