    Early run of guild inspired designs 1990's? Probably right after fender bought guild...

    It's a Squier version of a guild s1.

    They also made some 335 shaped guitars too. mostly Korean mostly decent.

    Yeah Dearmond was absorbed by Fender and this was one result.

    I don't like it...it's horns aren't pointy enough to be a SG.

    I've played one. It's ok, but no SG. I found the feel a little rough and the sound a bit brash. I'd throw out the tuners pretty quick and clean up the fret work. Might sound good through a Bassman with 2/15s but what doesn't?

    Asian copy of the Guild Polara (also known as the S100). I had an original and it was pretty nice. More heavily built than an SG, brighter pickups, phase switch, Grovers.

    It was nice, just not special...there is magic in an SG.

    I really dig the USA made S100s.

    The later ones had Seymore Duncan's stock.

    '93-'94 still had HB-1s. At some point in '94 on through '00/'01 they had SD-1s (Duncans), with early ones having the Guild covers. There are also later Fender designed HB-1 style pickups out there that tend to sound like poo. The first Korean run has mini-humbucker sized pickups Guild dubbed Anti-Hum Dual Coils. The current Korean run has full sized humbuckers, designed with help from Mr Tim Shaw to emulate vintage HB-1s as closely as possible.
