  • Guild X-79 skylark

    I just bot a X-79. 1983 I believe. White, which is rare and has held up pretty well. It has a coil split toggle. Does any one know if its factory. The only other one i have seen w/coil switch is on ebay right now. Any other info or pics of your x-79s??? Bought it as an investment but plays so good and the thing has grown on me. I guess they didnt make many.

    dude don't ever say you got a guitar for an investment around here that is a big ass flame thrower that will get you cooked
    are you sure it's a coil split, and not a in-out of phase switch?
    i have a 1977 guild s300ad and thats what it came stock with(the phase)

            Is the X-79 the odd shaped Guild KK Downing used to play?

                The bass player in the band I was in in high school had a black sparkle x-79 bass. It was pretty cool.

                  a high school buddy had one of those in red. I remember it played really good. This was back in '87. I think he traded it for a "St. Louis Blues" strat copy!

                      I have an 80's X-88 and since 88 is a bigger number than 79, mine must be better . Honestly though, I don't remember the Guilds having much in the way of elaborate wiring. This is of course from my limited experince with whatever Sam Ash had in the store at the time.
                      BTW - if anyone cares about such things. The Guild necks were some of the fastest, truest, nicest necks ever made. My X-88 is a rock machine...and it's white and pointy....

                        I dig those but prefer the ones that don't have the whammy bar.

                          One of the best looking original 'rock' guitar designs ever, IMHO.

                          Never got to play one, though...

                            I have a white X-79. I need to get that one out and see if I can do a setup and clean up the electronics. Mine seems to have pretty high outbut buckers in it. Mine does not have any switches other than a pickup selector switch.

                              yep, the venereable X-79.

                              I have seen them in sparkle, and graphic finishes as well. Some w/ the Gumby headstock as well as an early one that hac the "cloud" headstock. Lightweight and resonant, they kill w/ the right pickups
                              what a load of HOOEEY!!!
