Guild S-100 Polara Newark St. Collection Electric GuitarGuild
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, rock-solid mahogany neck, brilliant Black finish, and a potent pair of Guild HB-1 pickups. The welcome return of a true Guild classic.
Condition: When this guitar came in from the factory, the only issue found by the authorized refurbisher was a small finish scratch on the back of the left horn (see photo). No repairs or modifications were made to the guitar - they simply gave it a set-up and left it alone. Aside from the small scratch, the guitar is in mint condition. Action at the 12th fret is currently set to 3/64" on the bass side and 2/64" on the treble side. Guitar plays great with this low action set-up! All electronics are in perfect working order. Back of the headstock is stamped "used" and the original serial # has been replaced with a new one. The hard case has a noticeable tear on the side, but is otherwise fully functional.
