Guild Surfliner Sunset Orange

vintage-inspired electric 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. Available in Sunset Orange, Catalina Blue, and White Sage, the Surfliner features an entirely new solid body platform that crosses subtle offset styling with the vintage lines of 1960s and 1970s Guilds.

One of Guild’s few electric models to feature a 25.5” scale length and bolt-on neck, the combination pairs nicely with a Guild LB-1 “Little Bucker” in the bridge position and all-new DeArmond Aerosonic single coils in the middle and neck positions. Premium pickups give the Surfliner a wide array of tones, from crisp and jangly to thick and full when overdriven.

Voicings are driven by the Guild Rocker Pickup Switching System, featuring an on/off switch for each pickup, allowing a total of seven pickup combinations. Rounded out with a master volume and tone, medium jumbo frets, 3-ply pickguard, and a Guild logo resurrected from the 1980s.
