Clarification in bold. The line of human Gurus was ended by the departure of Guru Gobind Singh Ji and Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji became the eleventh and eternal Guru of Sikhs.

Therefore, Sikhism still has Guru and always will have one. The 10th Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, announced that our final Guru would be the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, which contains all the teachings of the 10 Gurus. The Guru Granth Sahib Ji is our holy book, but we tend to not refer to as a book but a living Guru. We treat it as we would if we had a real life Guru in front of us.
