Guild S-100 Polara Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • High-quality appointments for great performance
Based on a classic 1970s Guild solidbody

The S-100 Polara is based on the Guild S-100 guitar from the '70s. Boasting a body made of mahogany with a sleek offset design, and combined with a special pair of humbucking pickups, the S-100 Polara is primed for classic hard rock.

Rich tone from a pair of humbucking pickups

Armed with a pair of HB-1 humbucking pickups, when you plug in your Guild S-100 Polara you will be rewarded with a wide range of classic tones. As music was evolving into harder and heavier sounds, Guild released these higher-output pickups to ensure players could get the most out of their S-100. Famously used by Kim Thayil of Soundgarden, the HB1 humbucker pickups are quite capable of everything from articulate cleans to down-tuned riffing. And the S-100 Polara is sonically flexible, thanks to individual volume and tone controls for each pickup.

High-quality appointments for great performance

On top of great looks and tone, the Guild S-100 Polara sports high-quality features for years of reliable performance. Like the binding on the rosewood fretboard, which looks great but also adds an ultra-smooth playing feel. And Grover Sta-Tite die-cast tuners offer exceptional tuning stability and precision.

Guild S-100 Polara Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Vintage-voiced solidbody electric guitar
  • 2 HB-1 pickups serve up vintage tone without the vintage noise
  • Sleek double-cutaway design gives you unhindered access to the entire fretboard
  • Grover Sta-Tite tuners give you excellent tuning stability
Take a trip back to '70s with the Guild S-100 Polara!
