M-75 Aristocrat Gold

Finish Options:

     

Chambered body. The limited edition M-75G features a luxurious gold metallic top with lightly stained mahogany back, sides and neck offset with nickel hardware. Based upon Guild’s compact and lightweight M-75 Aristocrat model, the M-75G expertly evokes its predecessor of the early 1950s, with a gracefully sculpted single-cutaway hollow body specifically designed to produce the resonance of a larger instrument. Other premium features include a comfortable and rock-solid three-piece neck and the tonal magnificence of dual Franz P90 Soapbar pickups. The welcome return of a true Guild classic.

List Price: $1,520

A Closer Look at the M-75 Aristocrat

The Guild Franz P90 Soapbar single coil pickups have been offered in many electric guitars throughout Guild’s history. Originally known as “Frequency-Tested” pickups in their early years, these P90-style gems were first manufactured by the Franz company in New York. The Franz P90 is a faithful reproduction offering the classic tone profile of the original. The alnico 5 magnets and wide bobbin platform produce a detailed, crisp tone with plenty of output and sustain, creating a vintage voice suitable for any style. Also available as a top-mounted Dog Ear version for archtop guitars.
