    Did Guild discontinue the NS Aristocrat?

    I noticed that both Sweetware and Guitar Center list it as discontinued.

    Strangely, though, Guild's website seems to indicate only the Golden version is discontinued. And Musician's friend still lists it for sale.

    Just wondering....

    That's interesting. MF has them in stock, but that could just be until they don't: https://www.musiciansfriend.com/guit...lectric-guitar

    Nice! I think you got the last one because those show out of stock now.

    I think they've been discontinued for a while. I bought mine on Reverb. I generally don't buy new guitars.

    Would be a damn shame if they did, they're nice guitars, and something very unique to Guild. Now I'm gonna have to buy one anyway before they get "rare, discontinued, expensive"

    I think the used market got artificially flooded w/ goldtops shortly after they appeared as MF's Stupid Deal of the Day. What were those, like $500-ish?

    '66 Starfire XII (sunburst) SOLD
    '71 S-100 (natural) SOLD
    '74 Starfire VI (walnut/mahogany body) TRADED
    '94 X-700 (natural)
