Dates of manufacture: 

1988 to 2002

GUILD manufactured the X170 MANHATTAN between 1988 and 2002. The Guild X170 is a typical archtop jazz style single cutaway guitar. It has a multi-laminate maple body in medium-full size: 16 5/8" wide by 2 1/2" deep. Its slightly slimmer design makes the X170  more comfortable to hold and to play than a full depth jazz box. Guild pitched the X170 Manhattan model as a highly versatile guitar- with rich, professional tone quality and excellence of workmanship at a moderate price. Finish options were Tennessee Orange, Antique Burst or  Blonde

This guitar was also vailable with a Bigsby tremolo tailpiece as the X170B model.
