    The X-700 is a fine instrument. I've owned two and have one now. There are some differences as the model evolved. Here is an overview that is pretty detailed. At first it is unclear whether he likes it, but he does after he figures out how to use it.

    His opinion is that it is outclassed by the Artist Award and the Benedetto X-700. I don't agree at all. The AA is a different instrument that is designed as an acoustic with a floater. The X-700 is an amplified jazz guitar that performs very well as such. The Benedetto X-700 sounds like it should be an upgrade to the standard X-700. I have found the very thick finish on the Benedetto looks nice but muffles the top. Maybe you prefer that.

    The Guild X-700 would be at home at any traditional electric jazz gig. It's built well and built to last. The sides and back are laminate, which is absolutely fine for an electric. The master volume control comes in handy.

    I've posted before that I had brought my X-700 to Heritage to ask a few questions about the build. The old timer luthiers checked it over thoroughly among themselves and marveled at the workmanship. Two of them said the quality is generally better than the Golden Eagles they make when looking at the binding, inlays, and neck. They did not like the plastic pickguard but recognized that Guild used plastic to avoid gassing out back when Gibson was having those problems. Also, plastic is more durable and stable than wood, which Heritage uses. All in all, they were very impressed. These guys don't say things they don't mean either.
