1969 Guild catalogue page 5 - X-175 Manhattan and X-500 Stuart

Details of two deep-body electrics, X-175 Manhattan "for the critical jazz technician", and X-500 Stuart "one of the world's most esteemed jazz guitars". These guitars had been Guild staples for years, fitted with single coil pickups in the 1950s (see a 1953 X-175, changing to humbuckers in 1963. Although the pickup itself was pictured (inset to the main image), in all catalogues up until 1968, the guitar itself still showed the single coil units. This 1969 catalogue rectified that, and showed them in colour for the first time.

The Guild June 1969 list price for the X-175 guitars was $470 in sunburst or $485 in blonde finish; the X-500 $735/$760 in sunburst/blonde.
