    This Guild X-170 is a beautiful, comfortable, and versatile electric archtop, build in the Westerly, R.I. Guild factory in 1997. It has a light, laminate maple body and 3-piece maple neck, rosewood fretboard, and dual PAF-style humbucking pickups (made for Guild by Seymour Duncan). I've enjoyed playing this guitar (mostly in my smoke-free home, with a few careful gigs) for nearly 10 years, but with a recent acquisition its time to pass it on to another player.


    Made in the fine Guild tradition, the X-170 is a pro-level instrument. With its slightly smaller (16-1/2 x 2-1/2 inch) body, the X-170 is quite comfortable, and great choice for those who find a bigger archtop difficult. The slightly flat C-shaped neck is very easy to play. Its extravagantly flamed maple, Antique Sunburst finish, and gold hardware give it an elegant look and show its high quality of construction.


    This guitar could be a great choice for someone just starting out in the world of quality archtops without making a large investment, or a player wanting an instrument to take out on regular gigs (when those start happening again!)


    The X-170 is in excellent used condition, with only slight traces of use for its 23 years. The frets are still in great condition, with plenty of playing life left. The guitar comes in its original case with Guild logo, which is also in very good condition.

    - 16.5 x 2.5” laminate flame maple top, sides, and back
    - maple neck
    - rosewood fretboard with 20 frets, 24-3/4” scale, mother of pearl inlays
