Guild X-175, great at an affordable price

Franco1953, 14.04.2017
The guitar is very good since the first time it is extracted from the case.
Well finished and instantly playable, the chitarrist goes out of the factory decently adjusted and just tuning it up to start playing it.
The guitar mounted D? Addario EXL115 Nickel Wound .011-.049, after the first tests I aligned it with my standard cord for the hollow body with smooth strings 013 - 056
I did not notice any particular problems with the new cord, I just had to adjust the truss rod properly to compensate for the greater traction of the strings.
Even tuning over the 12th button did not make any problems with scaling 013 - 056, it was enough to disassemble the bridge and invert the Re, La, and Mi bass.
In this way I got the few millimeters needed to correct their slightly waning tuning beyond the 12th button.
The guitar mounts the Bigsby and for this reason the bridge is fixed to the harmonic plane, but the pitch adjustment of the individual strings after the bridge change has also been adequate for my usual scaling.
To compensate for the striking tension of the strings, which lowered the vibrato lever with the handwheel, I mounted the Bigsby spring from 1 "instead of the 7/8" supplied.
Needless to expect a Bigsby to perform a Floyd Rose, they are two different products, born at different times to meet different needs.
Bigsby responds effectively to rock and roll, rockabilly or country needs, which provide a low vibration, and in any case a "soft" leverage.
If you want a wider excursion, and you want to force the lever more forcefully, you have to turn to other guitars and other vibrato systems.
The sound of the Franz single coil pickup reissue back to the 1950s, can range from Rock & Roll, Blues and Jazz without any problems.
I bought the guitar just for the presence of these pickups mounted on a laminate harmonic plane, the acoustic sound is penalized by the presence of the harmonic piano pickups, but it is my opinion that the electric sound is gorgeous.
I also feature a 2001 Gibson ES-175 Natural that mounts the Gibson PAF humbucker pickup, the "color" and the expressiveness of the Franz single coil pickup reissue represent the sound I was looking for, "alternative" to that of the Gibson ES-175.
Sincerely, I can not consider the Gibson ES-175 better than my new Guild X-175, is another way of being "guitar".
Today, a Gibson ES-175 Natural costs about five times the value of the Guild X-175, not to discuss whether the difference between Gibson and the Guild is justified, there are two different guitars and their sound, and their "character" , Are different.
They are both very good guitars, I like both and both sound with pleasure and satisfaction.
