GUILD X-500

GUILD made the X-500 between 1953 and 1995. It is a hollow bodied electric - similar in design to the Epiphone Zephyr Deluxe Regent. This popular laminated archtop was one of Guild’s Stuart series guitars but was replaced by the carved top X700 in 1993.  The X-550 was the blonde version of the X-500 and the X-550 designation was changed to X-500B around 1960.

Pickups were changed to DeArmonds in 1961 and to humbuckers in 1963. The X-500 first had individual Kluson tuners, then Kolb in 1957 and Grover Rotomatic tuners in 1965.
