Polara Deluxe Vintage Sunburst

overview and body design

The Polara Deluxe offers an upgraded trim package to the base Polara model, delivering classic aesthetics that recall 1970s design elements with modern enhancements. Where the base Polara model is stripped down, the Polara Deluxe is elevated—including a bound rosewood fingerboard with block inlays, Guild Peak and Chesterfield headstock inlays, Guild compensated stopbar tailpiece, and colour options ranging from classic transparent to modern metallic.

hb-2+ humbucker pickups

The HB-2+ pickups are modern extensions of the coveted Guild HB-1 oversized humbuckers, built in a traditional size humbucker with Alnico V magnets. These hot-wound HB-2+ pickups bring an assortment of boutique quality tones with loads of character and voice. The Polara Deluxe has traditional Guild pickup covers featuring Guild’s classic dual rail design, with 2x volume, 2x tone controls and push/pull coil splitting for maximum tonal variety.

mahogany body with ultra-playable set neck design

The Polara Deluxe’s 24 ¾ inch scale length is familiar and friendly to all types of players. A bound rosewood fingerboard and block inlays provide an upgraded look, while the headstock includes Guild’s classic “Peak” and “Chesterfield” inlays. A 12.5 inch radius and vintage soft U neck shape provide comfortable playability up and down the fingerboard.

cherry red, canyon dusk metallic and vintage sunburst gloss finish options

For those looking for the original 1970s look, a transparent Cherry Red finish over the Mahogany body never disappoints. A Vintage Sunburst option brings some of Guild’s hollow body aesthetics to this updated set neck solidbody, with a hand sprayed burst enhancing the body, neck and headstock. The Canyon Dusk metallic finish, one of Guild’s most popular new finishes, pairs perfectly with the nickel hardware and Rosewood fingerboard.
