Guild’s Surfliner takes the sleek '60s style of a traditional offset guitar and hot rods it with performance-minded features for guitarists who require an instrument with rock solid stability. The Surfliner’s lightweight poplar body and offset-waist body shape provide an unmatched comfort — both sitting and standing. The smooth maple-on-maple neck’s Narrow Jumbo frets and 10-inch radius ensure smooth playability for all players. The Surfliner has versatility in spades, boasting an HSS configuration comprised of two Aersonic single coils and an LB-1 mini humbucker in the bridge, taking you everywhere from surfy drip to all-out crunch. The string-through body and the Tune-o-matic bridge are ideal for players who love the offset look, but prefer a more streamlined hardware setup.
The Surfliner's sound is driven by the Guild Rocker Pickup Switching System, with master volume, tone control, and 3 rocker switches. Each rocker switch is assigned to a single pickup allowing players to dial in a total of 7 pickup combinations, every possible combination available from three pickups.
The LB-1 Bridge pickup is a recreation of vintage Guild Humbuckers from the 60's offering a range of tones well suited for a variety of playing styles and genres. The middle and neck pickups are a matched set of Dearmond Aerosonicmiddle and neck single coil pickups. These pickups feature Alnico V magnets and a shielded nickel cover.
Vintage-inspired electric guitar with offset appeal
Influenced by the iconic heritage and eccentric shapes of vintage Guilds, the all-new Guild Surfliner compliments the brand lineage by combining classic styling with modern features in an offset, solid-body electric. The Surfliner features a fast-playing satin-finished neck and a gloss body available in Catalina Blue, Sunset Orange, and white Sage Finishes.
Solid poplar body with comfortable c shaped 25.5” scale maple neck
Sleek, contoured lines shape the asymmetric Poplar body, while a satin-finished C-shaped neck provides smooth playing and tactile familiarity. Evenly balanced and shaped to fit comfortably at any strap height. Featuring a neck-to-body joint at the 17th fret.
Outfitted with three professional pickups in the versatile hss format
One of Guild’s few electric models to feature a 25.5” scale length, the longer string length pairs nicely with three pickups that offer everything from chiming, spanky lead tones to thick, compressed rhythm. Classic, vintage humbucking bridge tones ooze out of the Guild LB-1 bridge pickup and bring a usable array of tones from sparkly clean single coil-esque spank to thick and warm humbucker sounds that fatten and sing when driven. Blending perfectly with the biting single-coil tones of the two new Dearmond Aerosonic middle and neck pickups.
