Anyone have one of these?

Especially one with P90's.

I've got a friend who owns two. One is a Blonde Maple with P90's & the other is a Vintage Burst with the smaller humbuckers oh what are they called?

Hmmmm.....


Anyway, been looking for a good one that was made before Guild moved operations from Rhode Island to California for over a year now.

Damn hard to find for a fair price.

HUGE hollow body anyone here have one?

KILLER guitars. Killer. Mini-hums (HB1s) rock even more.

If he's selling, you should be buying.

I have X-170s, 'cause I'm more into the rockabilly thing than the jazz thing, but they are coveted by Guild Freaks the world over. Check out letstalkguild.com for all the sordid details.

Are you talking about a pre-1963 X-500 with Franz P-90s or a more recent one with Duncans?

I have a 2002 X-500 - one of the last of the Westerlys. They're quite easy to find for a reasonable price on Gbase, Ebay and elsewhere. I greatly prefer the neck and pickups on the Westerly guitars to the Corona models. Anything in particular you want to know?
