GUILD made the Rockabilly X160 between 1999 and 2003. The Guild X160 Rockabilly was an arch-top guitar with an all maple body. The X160 uses the same body and neck as the X150. Like the X150, the X160 had a classic style laminated maple body (16" wide x 3"deep), finished in high gloss polyurethane, and has a bound Mahogany neck with the Guild Chesterfield logo. The fretboard of the X160 was solid rosewood with pearloid "block" inlays, and is rounded off with a Bigsby tailpiece and tremolo bridge.  Pickups were two DeArmond 2000s - the X-160s were the first production instruments to have the original DeArmond Model 2000 pickup in over twenty years.

The Guild X160 Rockabilly was built at Guild's Westerly, Rhode Island facilities, Unlike any other Guild Jazz guitar, the Rockabilly was available in four distinctive color options, including: Black; Tennessee Orange; Metallic Blue and Fiesta Red. When new the recommended retail price was $2,500.
