Product Description

A rare and unique model, possibly Guild's most interesting electric, made to resemble a Les Paul with the important difference that it is hollow. This one is extremely rare in that it has a single pick-up, while retaining most of the cosmetic details of the two pickup M-75. The single-coil pickup was made by Franz, a company in Astoria, N.Y. Guild?s catalog called the Aristocrat ?a magnificence of tone never before achieved in a guitar of this size.? George Gruhn said of this guitar: "It appears to be original and in fine condition. While it does not conform to the typical catalogue specs of the M-75, it appears to be a custom order rather than a prototype." Vintage Guitar Mag., Dec. 2008. The Aristocrat was the featured cover girl of the V.G. Mag of August, 08.
