For your consideration a 1956 Guild M75 Aristocrat with a Sunburst finish! No quite like anything else from this time, the Aristocrat is a fantastic model that melds high end archtop design with Les Paul aesthetic! While it doesn't have "F" holes it does have a full hollow body! This gives it a wonderful light weight as well as a lively resonate tone! Original two Franz single coil pick ups! Brazilian rosewood fingerboard! Perfect action for Jazz/Chord Melodies! Features most of Guilds Classic appointments, wonderful Sunburst finish, block inlay, G headstock inlay & Guild Harp tail piece! Made in Manhattans "little Italy"!
