Guild S100 Polara Kim Thayil - Black

Get ready to rock with the Guild S100 Polara Kim Thayil, a guitar that pays homage to the legendary guitarist of Soundgarden. This signature model combines classic grunge aesthetics with modern features to deliver an instrument that's ready to roar.

Grunge Icon Aesthetics Meets Modern Performance

The Guild S100 Polara Kim Thayil features a mahogany body and neck adorned with the iconic Guild 70's large headstock. It's a nod to the '78 S-100, reflecting Kim Thayil's favorite features. With a bound Rosewood fingerboard sporting Pearloid block inlays, Tune-o-Matic bridge, and a compensated stopbar tailpiece, this guitar boasts both style and substance.

Rock-Solid Hardware and Classic Humbuckers

Kim Thayil's signature model comes equipped with Grover Original Rotomatics® tuners, ensuring tuning stability and ease of use, just as per his request. The Guild HB-1 Humbuckers, loaded with Alnico II magnets, deliver the warm and articulate tones reminiscent of 70's S-100 Polaras. They also feature a phase switch, staying true to vintage specs and allowing you to recreate Kim's signature sound.
