The Polara has been a standout in the Guild solid body lineup since the early 1970s. From hard hitting riffs by Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil and many others across all genres, the Polara is a versatile instrument with a vibe all its own.

Overview And Body Design

The base model in the Polara platform packs a special combination of timeless design and modern features. Built on a stripped down, no frills design approach, the Polara “Night Edition” 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.

Mahogany Body With Ultra-playable Set Neck Design

The Polara’s 24 ¾ 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.

HB-2+ Humbucker Bridge Pickups With Alnico V Magnets

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.

Phantom Green, Blue Steel & Voltage Yellow Gloss Finish Options

Hard hitting and eye-catching colors 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.

I began my guitar journey here. The support and advice provided by Leyton has been invaluable. From my first acoustic guitar and recommendation for my first guitar tutor. To my first electric guitar and amp.

I won't be going anywhere else.

I value the excellent customer service!

Leyton will always go that extra mile to get you what you need. During this lockdown period I know that 'extra mile' has proved to be invaluable to many.
