Product Description

The Guild S-100 Polara Electric Guitar brings back the classic Guild style from the '70s and is ready to rock with an undeniably unique tone and vibe! A solid and slightly offset mahogany body gives the S-100 Polara the esteem of its hard-rocking predecessor of more than 40 years ago. A distinctive 24.75 inch scale, rock-solid mahogany neck and a potent pair of ‘anti-hum’ pickups make the Guild S-100 Polara the perfect axe for modern and old-school players alike!

Overall Rating
Different but nice!
What is your overall opinion of this product?
This is a very nice guitar for the money. Definitely a great guitar for those looking for something different than standard Gibson or Fender offerings.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Overall quality out of the box is excellent and on par with much more expensive instruments. I bought an AVRI Jazzmaster and two Les Pauls last year and this guitar is easily as well finished as those. This guitar works well for blues and classic rock. Also covers the tones of modern Christian music very well.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Not really a light guitar. To me the neck feels very similar to a Gibson slim-taper neck. It also reminds me a lot of the neck on Gretsch guitars -- which to me a is a good thing! Controls work well.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Pickups are fairly hot and sound very similar to traditional humbuckers. I've had a bunch of guitars with Lollar pickups which has spoiled me. These pickups are on par with other stock pickups, but not nearly as lively sounding as Lollars.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish on my instrument is flawless. The cherry stain on the mahogany body looks outstanding in person. More than one person has commented favorably on its overall appearance.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I've had several Mexican Fenders and a couple of Japanese Fenders. I would place this guitar as better than a Mexican Fender and just about as nice as a Japanese Fender. It feels and looks better than the Epiphones I've tried.
How was the action out of the box?
Action out of the box was OK. I did have to adjust the pickup heights to even out the pickup volume balance. Also, the intonation needed a bit of adjusting.
