Guild X-175 Manhattan

Hollow body. A strikingly beautiful and musically exceptional guitar, the X-175 Manhattan is an outstanding example of professional Guild tone, responsiveness and versatility. With its gracefully sculpted and richly resonant hollow body, rock-solid three-piece neck and electrifying dual Franz P90 Dog Ear single-coil pickups, it evokes the enchanting Guild Manhattan model of the 1950s and ’60s, marking the welcome return of a true Guild classic.

The Guild Franz P90 Dog Ear single coil pickups have been offered in many electric guitars throughout Guild’s history. Originally known as “Frequency-Tested” pickups in their early years, these P90-style gems were first manufactured by the Franz company in New York. The Franz P90 is a faithful reproduction offering the classic tone profile of the original. The alnico 5 magnets and wide bobbin platform produce a detailed, crisp tone with plenty of output and sustain, creating a vintage voice suitable for any style. Also available as a Soapbar version for use in solid body guitars.
