This is an approximately 2015, Koran-made (Newark St. Collection) Guild reissue M-75 Aristocrat. It is a hollow body without f- holes. It is 999.00 new on Musician's Friend. It has two dings, which is why the price is low.
All the specs are on-line. Briefly: Laminated Spruce top, with Mahogany back and sides. Three-piece neck. It's light as a feather. It's got tone to the bone. It's hollow, without "f" holes. The pickups are reissue Franz/Guild "Frequency-Tested", which are constructed almost exactly like a Gibson P-90, but slightly under wound. So, the tone is a little cleaner than a P-90, with more even frequency response. At the same time, the neck pickup can growl like a P-90 if you dig in. The bridge pup really twangs. The pups are reverse-wound, so they are hum-cancelling in the both-on position. I have a 54 guild with original Franz/ Guild pickups. These reissue pups sound remarkebly similar to the vintage ones. Gold plated hardware. Grover tuners. It's Gibson scale. Original hard-shell case included.
Obviously, it has a chip in the finish missing at the treble side of the neck pup, and two finish dings on the side as shown. Otherwise, the guitar is in beautiful condition.The original case has scratches, but is a very nice fit. I'm happy to answer questions. No trade offers, please.
