2000 Guild - X-500 - Natural

Product Details

No. 0064, includes original black Tolex Guild hardshell case. Condition is excellent plus- no odors, no fret wear, no issues. Why would anyone buy a wildly overpriced ES175 when you can have this big curly blonde for way less- with Benedetto humbuckers & a Spruce top!! Made in Corona, CA Benedetto-Guild shop. Overall condition is excellent plus. There is a small ding on the treble-side corner at the top of the headstock; also a scratch in the clear on the back (about half-inch long, does not reach the wood). There is also a little bit of weather checking beginning to appear in the finish; there are finish checks on either side of the neck around the end of the fretboard.

Original Guild pickups have been replaced with Benedetto pickups, but are included in the case pocket. Not sure of the exact age of this guitar but it hails from the Benedetto era of Guild.. Considering how low the serial number is, and the fact that the truss rod cover is not printed, we would guess this guitar was one of the first of this era. Just detailed, restrung & setup . Plays GREAT! .
