Hollow body. An extraordinary instrument for the swinging soloist and technician, Guild’s X-175B Manhattan is a masterpiece of the guitar maker’s art. It presents the same exceptional appointments as its brother, the X-175 Manhattan, including a gracefully sculpted hollow body, rock-solid three-piece neck and electrifying dual single-coil Franz P90 Dog Ear pickups.

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 features the addition of a Guild vibrato tailpiece and is available in a handsome blonde finish.
