Guild Guitars | Surfliner Series

Surf’s Up at CME This Summer with Guild Guitar’s New Surfliner Series!

Taking inspiration from the eccentric vintage Guild guitar body shapes of a bygone era, Guild’s Surfliner combines classic, offset styling with modern features! 

With three pickups featuring individual toggle switches, the Guild Surfliner provides a range of tones—from full and warm, to bright and spanky with a vintage-style LB-1 humbucker in the bridge, while the DeArmond Aerosonic single coils in the neck go from bell-like to biting. 

Together with the Guild Rocker Pickup Switching System, the Guild Surfliner allows for seven total pickup combinations for a wide variety of available sounds! Stop into CME to hear one, today!

Guild Surfliner Sunset Orange

$449.00
Brand new 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.

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.

Guild’s Rocker Pickup Switching System offers easy access to 7 pickup combinations
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 the 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 Aerosonic middle and neck single coil pickups. These pickups feature Alnico V magnets and a shielded nickel cover.
