You can’t fit into your old spandex pants anymore but this all original 1982 Guild X-79 Skyhawk, sn# AD1008XX in a rare Black Sparkle finish is still super cool. The back of the guitar’s finish is in excellent condition…that’s a reflection (sorry). This guitar is all original and will ship in a hard shell case. The case is black and does not have the Guild logo on the outside, but it fits it perfectly.

These guitars scream ‘80’s and are just very cool guitars to play. They are very light…this one is 6 lbs. 2 oz…easy to handle with a full 24 fret neck. The frets on this guitar are almost as new showing very little play-wear. The ebony finger board is in excellent shape as well. The neck is straight and fast and the tuners and truss rod work as intended.


Talk about screaming…the two humbucking pickups in this baby do scream and measure 8.81 k ohms for the bridge pickup and 8.43 k ohms for the bridge pickup, both measured at the output jack. The electronics and solder are untouched and the potentiometers both date code at the 39th week of 1980. Don’t remind me that was 30 years ago!

She will be professionally packed with care.
