    if it needs brightening up I have ways to do that.

    By the way, I used your site so many times over the years to find out about more obscure guitars. I think you were one of the trailblazers.

    Oh, that's hot. Very nice.
    If it ain't broke, it can probably still be optimized...

    Looks very nice : I hope it works good and has no issues. I had been watching these guitars recently, including the Starfire ST II too : they seem to be the only "Les Paul" shaped slim hollow-bodies on the market, among the fancy brands at least (is that right ?), and about the best idea I can think of for a next electric...
    I knew someone that had one for a while a long time ago (lent by a friend), and I keep its memory in mind, quite vivid still after about 40 years (must have an ST II I believe). Seems the best formai I can think of right now...Enjoy !

    No the Aristocrat M-75 is not a hollow-body guitar : looks too much like a Les Paul copy. I was thinking of hollow-bodies when mentioning the Les Paul shape : as a matter of fact I just meant with only one cut-away...That this one is much larger than a Les Paul does not worry me : it's even better with a semi-acoustic guitar (one would need sound to play acoustically). There are hundreds of Les Paul-like guitars - even thousands - whereas I can't think of any other slim hollow-bodies with only one cut-away...Guild had that for a long time. I like it.

    Mavuser is right, Bernie. The Aristocrat is hollow even if it doesn't look like it.

    i think u are confusing the NS aristocrat w the Newark Street Bluesbird. the aristocrat is full hollow. like i said i owned one. it also has a cutaway and P-90s/Franz

    Still, even if you're right, how do you guys know what I want better than I do...I told you of a 40 years memory of a guitar, didn't I ? And it doesn't look at all like this one, which is what I get googling Guild M-75 Aristocrat.
    If this guitar is "hollow-body" as you say, and doesn't have any sound hole, where do you get its sound from ? I'm talking about guitars that have a bit of sound at least when played unplugged : aren't you talking about guitars that are empty inside in order to be lighter ?
