    AC Newman plays a late 70’s M-75 BLUESBIRD, not an Aristocrat! His guitar is a solid mahogany guitar with a stop tail and HB-1 humbucking pickups. other than the outline of the body and the “M-75” at the beginning of its name, it bears no other similarities to any aristocrat guitar past or present. And to think this is the official guild website? Your fans need you to do better.
