Guild Polara Electric Guitar - Phantom Green

Brand: Guild
Stock Id: 153421

Built on a stripped down, no-frills design approach, the Polara has an ultra-light ergonomic body thanks to its contouring and minimalistic hardware package. Notably, a string-through body design transmits string resonance straight through the mahogany body delivering massive sustain and response. A diagonal string layout matches Guild’s compensated stop bar design first introduced in the early 1970s.

The Polara features a Mahogany body with a set neck design and 24 ¾ scale length, which is familiar and friendly to all types of players. A Rosewood fingerboard and modern U shape neck with simple dot inlays provide a classic look.
The new uncovered 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 a variety of boutique quality tones with loads of character and voice. Black pole pieces further expand the vibe while simplified master volume and tone controls add to the Polara’s no frills and down to business design.
Hard hitting and eye-catching colours complimented by the uncovered HB-2+ pickups with black pole pieces bring a vibe that pairs perfectly with the Polara’s offset and rock ready design. Available in Voltage Yellow, Phantom Green and Blue Steel.

1. Bridge – Hum Canceling This position has the most “edge” or “bite”. Overwound for a big, powerful tone without sounding too dark, a great tool to push an amp into singing distortion. Perfect for solos or in your face rhythm parts, the HB-2+ humbucker possesses a bold, rich tone that is equally capable in any musical style.  

2. Bridge + Neck – Hum Canceling – This position combines the tonalities of the neck and bridge humbuckers. Thick, creamy mids, big, round bass and clear trebles make this a great all-around tone.

3. Neck – Hum Canceling This position produces a warm, round tone great anything from singing lead lines to clean rhythm lines.
