Product Description
Guild S-100 Polara

Solid body. Guild style from the ’70s is back and better than ever with the return of the solid-body S-100 guitar. With its solid and slightly offset mahogany body, the new S-100 Polara™ evokes its esteemed and hard-rocking predecessor of more than 40 years ago. Responsive and versatile, it also features a distinctive 24 3/4″ scale, brilliant White finish, rock-solid mahogany neck, and a potent pair of Guild HB-1 pickups. Also available in classic Cherry Red and Black finish. The welcome return of a true Guild classic.

A Closer Look at the S-100 Polara

The Guild HB-1 Humbucking pickup was originally introduced as an upgraded, high-output version of the LB-1. As music continued to evolve, players’ needs evolved with it, and Guild found the HB-1 was well suited in their solid body models, like the S-100 Polara. The higher-output created a bigger, fuller sound that gave players an increased flexibility as they explored new sounds. The HB-1 continues to provide today’s musicians with classic tone and versatility.
