A blast from the past, the S-100 Polara ressurects the iconic Guild styling from the 70s. The solid and slightly offset Mahogany body pay tribute to its stunning predecessor from more than 40 years ago, but the looks are just the beginning.

This is a very versatile guitar. The potential tones on the S-100 are vast, with twin volume and tone controls for each of its superbly defined HB-1 Pickups. Whether screaming out a rock solo, chiming a jazzy melody, or picking a muddy blues riff, this guitar will be up to the task.

Best of all though, is the ease in which you can do all those things. The neck is as smooth as silk, letting your hands roam free and fast. The action too is a delight, every note is attainable and every chord is reachable, with the mahogany body being light and manageable.

A superb, well rounded guitar, and there even a high quality Guild Polyfoam case to put it in.
