These rare, rare guitars look like a laser blast from outer space... This particular specimen had been stripped down and a clear coat applied to the natural wood. The whole toneful alien beast has been gone through and professionally set-up, and it's a great player. Brass nut = tons of natural sustain. The pickups are remarkable as the 80's Guild pickups are truly badass, like the whole psychorphany of this singular butter maker. 

I wish to point out that the tiny endmost pointy piece of the asymmetrical headstock is missing - this guitar came to me this way, I only added the coil tap so, surf's up! The neck is remarkably smooth, straight and fast, 24 frets no waiting, it's a seriously amazing neck. A real honey dripper that can handle all kinds of music. Tiny dings I've tried to show; very solid, playable and unique instrument.

From the google: 

The X-79 SKYHAWK was made between 1981 and 1985. The Guild X-79 had a futuristic asymmetrical mahogany body with set mahogany neck. Pickups were two Guild XR-7 humbuckers controlled by two volume, one tone controls and a 3-way selector switch. Coil tap or phase switch were optional. According to Guild production figures, 1790 were made in total.
