The Guild "Night Edition" in Black Tungsten Gloss Finish is part of the base model Polara platform, which includes Deluxe, Artist Signature, and USA options above it. They pack a special combination of timeless design and modern features.

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.

HB-2+ Humbucker Pickups with Alnico V Magnets
The 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.

Mahogany Body with Ultra-playable Set Neck Design
The Polara's 24 3/4 scale length 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 "Night Edition" trim option brings a blacked-out look, including Ebony fingerboard, black metal headstock "Peak" logo and all-black hardware to compliment a dark read more Tungsten finish.
