The reason I was looking at the online store for Guild was this project guitar which arrived today. 1958 Guild M-65 3/4 Freshman. It’s the Guild equivalent of the Gretsch Rambler. This husk has already been stripped and primed by the previous owner. He also filled in a modified neck pickup rout. He decided he didn’t have enough time to finish the job. Neck is straight, frets are a bit worn, but will do for now. He got a little paint on the fretboard also so that will have to be sanded off. A true hollow body, it weighs 3 lbs. 4 oz.! My plan isn’t finalized yet. I’m thinking of going with a Reissue DeArmond Rhythm King pickup, which is fretboard mounted, so I don't need to cut into the top. Or a Dyna in the usual neck position. Guild pickguard. Volume and tone controls with Guild knobs. Output jack on the side. Floating bridge and Guild tail piece. Maybe gold, going for an Aristocrat vibe. Paint it some shade of blue of course! Will look for a Guild headstock sticker. Alternatively I might look to reuse the ebony parts from my Blue 6120JR.
