With brand-new appointments, the Guild Surfliner Deluxe elevates the Surfliner platform. Introducing Guild's first-ever roasted maple neck, which has been added for increased stiffness and stability and a dark aged appearance. The satin finished C-shaped 25.5" scale neck is complemented by a bound rosewood fingerboard with block inlays, making for a comfortable playing experience.
The new Guild Floating Vibrato Tailpiece (GFVT), designed for the Surfliner Deluxe, opens the Surfliner platform to new playing styles and is capable of a wide range of vibrato effects, from subtle flutters to deep swells. For the best bar tension control, the GFVT has a nylon insert and an easily accessible tension screw. With an engraved "G" for the traditional Guild DNA.
The HB-2 was created to imitate the warm, rich tone of vintage Guild humbuckers in a standard size format. It has a bridge HB-2 Humbucker with Alnico II magnets. The chiming single-coil tones of the two DeArmond Aerosonic middle and neck pickups are a perfect match for the HB-2.
Built with a lightweight Poplar solid body, the new Surfliner Deluxe features a gloss finish and matching headstock.
