A Closer Look at the S-100 Polara

The Guild HB-1 Humbucking pickup was originally introduced as an upgraded, high-output version of the LB-1. As music continued to evolve, players’ needs evolved with it, and Guild found the HB-1 was well suited in their solid body models, like the S-100 Polara. The higher-output created a bigger, fuller sound that gave players an increased flexibility as they explored new sounds. The HB-1 continues to provide today’s musicians with classic tone and versatility.
