Versatile too. Although it has a star turn with clean tones, it likes a bit of drive too. The hollow body won't take to much gain before it starts to feed back but a little works wonders. The M75 is a stunning jazz guitar when you need a smaller instrument as well. The Franz-Style soapbar pickups will handle a great range. Not as muddy as humbuckers, beefier than single coils. The set in Mahogany neck and vintage soft U is a joy to play. The Guild Aristocraft ships with its own Hard Shell Case.
