The Guild X-50 was Guild’s response to Gibson ES-125. It was the smallest of Guilds hollowbody and the only model of the ‘X’ line to be non-cutaway. Early models were nicknamed Granada, up until 1961 when the guitar was renamed Cordoba.
Despite the fact it was not such a popular model at the time, several variations of the T-100 exist. The earliest model had a single Franz P90 pickup (T-100 SP). A dual pickup (T-100 DP) version followed. In order to compete with Gibson’s new models, a version was released as the “Guild Starfire” with two humbuckers. Photo: Greg’s guitar
The S-50 was the first solid body to come out of Guild’s factory, along with its bigger brothers, the S-100 Polara and the S-200 Thunderbird. The model lived through few changes, especially in the 70s when it acquired the body shape of a Gibson SG. The original version showcases a firebird-like headstock. In any case, the S-50 rocks.
