M-75 Aristocrat Black

Finish Options:


The welcome return of a true Guild Classic featuring mahogany back and sides with a chambered body and arched Spruce braced top. The compact and lightweight M-75 Aristocrat model expertly evokes its predecessor of the early 1950s, with a historic Guild single-cutaway hollow body specifically designed to produce the resonance of a larger instrument. Additional features include a bound Ebony fingerboard, Grover Sta-tite tuners, a comfortable, rock-solid three-piece neck, and vintage reproduction Guild Franz P90 pickups. Ships with a hardshell case. *New for 2023, Guild has re-released and limited run in all black gloss. Also available in Antique Sunburst.
