NAMM 2020: GUILD STARFIRE 1 SERIES GUITARS

Starting at $499 (USA street), the new Starfire I family takes the iconic Starfire Double Cut and Single Cut body shapes into the modern era with new models and colors. All models feature the appointments any gigging or recording musicians requires, including a tried and true Tune-o-matic bridge, premium Guild Vintage 18 open back tuners with 18:1 ratio, an easily accessible 12” radius Rosewood fretboard and thin U neck profile, a traditional three way toggle switch with dedicated volume and tone controls, and push-pull coil splitting for each pickup. An injection of rich, vintage tone is provided by Guild’s own HB-2 Alnico II humbuckers featured on all Starfire I models, giving these semi-hollow bodies a professional tone from the start. For those looking for something a little extra, the Starfire I GVT comes equipped with a Tune-o-matic bridge and Guild’s Vibrato Tailpiece for additional tonal versatility. Guild’s engineering team worked tirelessly to bring the classic aesthetic and road-ready quality that has been synonymous with Guild to the new competitively priced Starfire I platform. Get ready to get rowdy!
