First offered in the 1950’s as one of Guild’s top of the line models, the X-350 Stratford returns today as elegant as ever. Full hollow body construction using an elegantly arched spruce top and spruce tone bar bracing gives the Stratford its iconic airy tonality, while the three Franz P90 single coil pickups give this guitar a world of tonal possibilities from biting growls to clean, jazzy chime. Intuitive controls make navigating the tonal pallet of three pickups a breeze, using a traditional three way pickup selector to control the Bridge and Neck pickup and a designated volume knob to blend the middle pickup into any configuration. Complementing the variety of tones available from the X-350 is a Guild Vibrato Tailpiece for expressive playing. Other premium features include fully bound body, neck, F-holes, and headstock, mother-of-pearl block fretboard inlays and a deluxe hard shell case.
