Guild S-100 Electric Guitar Review

This review was submitted by Guitar Jar contributor: Curtis

When I began to get serious about my guitar playing, I had to begin the upgrading process with finding a “new” guitar. I had my heart set on finding something with the Gibson logo on it, and being 15 and on a serious budget made this no easy task.

…easily one of the most overlooked guitars in history…

Guild S-100I went to a favorite local music store and happened upon this beautiful 1 year old SG looking guitar.

So after playing it, buying it at a great price, I’ve come to love this one guitar and no other.

Its playability, its look, its tone, and its options leave me to believe that it is easily one of the most overlooked guitars in history. I love this guitar and will never get rid of this gem.

Features:

  • Solid one piece mahogany body and neck
  • Rosewood fret board with mother of pearl inlays
  • Seymour Duncan 59′(neck)/Seymour Duncan JB(bridge)
  • Grover tuners
  • Series/parallel switch
  • 3 way pickup selector
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Ease of use:

The neck is at that perfect medium thickness. Not too thin and not too thick.

The neck joint is solid and not to bulky as to block you from reaching the higher frets.

Perfectly positioned knobs and switches.

It’s constructed of such high grade material that no one should ever find themselves struggling to work with this guitar.

Sound Quality:

Between the high quality pickups, the warm tone wood throughout the body, the amazing craftsmanship, and the overall resonance of this guitar, I would say that you would be hard-pressed to say that this guitar is the reason you sound bad.

The 59′ neck pickup is a perfect match for the wood used in this guitar, producing a warm (not muddy) sound that has an amazing range of uses. The neck pickup has an equal range and versatility.

My opinion over all is that the makers of this guitar created an amazing tapestry for any artist to put in anything they need or want in it to accomplish whatever they need while still maintaining its own character and personality.

Reliability:

Made in the U.S.A when it still meant something. Nothing has failed on it for me in the last 12 or 13 years that I’ve owned it.

Solid construction.

Overall Rating:

I would recommend this guitar to anyone for any reason on any day.

She has served me well and has allowed me to grow with her, learn with her, and has never once complained or held me back.

I have always been the problem when it comes to development as a musician, not her.

  • Can you buy guitars from this site, if so what is the link to it, I want to get my son a bass guitar and not sure wish one to get.

    • Hi Debra, no we don’t sell guitars on GuitarJar.co.uk – you’re best bet, depending where you located is for you and your son to go and try some bass guitars out in a local store. Bass guitars are generally quite big, but you can get variations on sizes and price. It’s much better for your son to find a bass that’s going to be fun to play, as opposed to a struggle – which you may find if you buy one online. Hope this helps and good luck finding one.
