Guild X79 with scary 80s paintjob

This is Guillaume over at the Iconic Guitars blog.

I'm always looking for guitars to feature on the blog and stumbled upon this shocking though captivating Guild X79 with the oddest 80's paintjob. I think it belongs to your blog.

The X79 is an all mahogany guitar and neck with a rosewood fingerboard and 24 frets. The shape is out of nowhere, like if 4 people had decided to pull the body of an SG or a Guild S300 in different directions. As I said, the paint job, with its blue and white lines and curves is so 80's that this guitar belongs to a modern art musem (I wouldn't be surprised if Zakk Wylde put a bid on this one). And as any good 80's shredding board, the Floyd Rose tremolo is de rigueur.

Have a good week end,
Ah yes, the dreaded Music Outlet Shop of Cologne. You can usually halve the prices that they give on eBay to get a better idea of a guitar's true value. However, nice find!

  1. Five years later they're still trying to sell that guitar. At least they're using a different picture.
