    New Newark Street archtops, apparently

    Anybody else who saw Guild's instagram story yesterday?

    They had "artist day" in Oxnard it said, and it showed some clips of people visiting the factory, and playing some familiar and not so familiar Newark Street guitars.

    Clearly visible in the short clips were what looked like the Korean X175, but in what appeared to be candy apple red, with three franz pickups and a Bigsby. In the same clip, someone was playing a metallic blue X175, again with Bigsby, and two white topped DeArmond pickups, and it looked like it had headstock binding.

    Looks like there are going to be some new archtops at winter NAMM. Hope there are going to be different finishes too.

    Not having Instagram, I missed it. I suppose I should check propaganda Book for updates.

    Maybe they're reissuing the Catalina Blue X160!

    I checked out their Instagram page and didn’t see anything.

    Ralf(SFIV1967) reported and posted a sighting of a Catalina Blue Newark St. model a while back, just can't remember which it was but it was an archtop.
    So wondered if maybe it was that same guitar making another appearance.

    It wasn't on their actual page, it was an "Instagram story", and those dissappear after 24 hours.....

    certainly looked like it! Hope there will be a different finish too, not a fan of the blue

    I know the feeling!

    Seem to recall you spotted it hanging on a wall in the backdrop of a Guild communication about pending models?
    That one wasn't specifically mentioned as I recall but you commented on it being visible in the pic.
    Might have been 3 years ago already.
