For sale is this beautiful Guild Aristocrat. I bought it from the family of a guitar player that passed a couple years ago. It’s been beautifully taken care of and you can tell it’s been loved on by a player.

I don’t know the story of the retrofit bridge and matching tailpiece, but the work is exceptional there. The original tail piece, bridge, and pickguard will be included in the case. There are also some replacement knobs that match the tailpiece and look great.

Guild’s manufacturing from that era was absolute top notch. The neck is perfect. The scale is a little shorter, making it super easy to play.

Commonly mistaken for P90s, the pickups on Aristocrats are totally unique. Coupled with the sound of the hollow body, this guitar can span from more percussive acoustic-electric sounds to high gain pure rock and roll. The pickups are currently in phase, but when they are out of phase this guitar sounds shockingly like early meters.

The case is original.

I’m selling to finance other ventures. I hope this lands in good hands. Do inquire with any questions.
