What they say

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!

An affordably priced, single cut Starfire has arrived. Based on the timeless Starfire II and III single cut body shape, the Starfire I SC features a 2“ thick, hollow body with an added bridge block to increase bridge stability and improved resonance. Made with a sturdy arched maple top, back, and sides, the Starfire I SC has the airy tonality of a hollow body instrument with bright overtones and pronounced lows. The 24 3/4” scale length and modern thin “U” neck profile provide a fast, smooth playing neck, while the premium Guild Vintage 18 tuners and Tune-o-matic bridge ensure the strings are accessible and in tune. Rich, vintage tone is injected by Guild’s own HB-2 Alnico II humbuckers, and the push-pull coil splitting feature allows for singing, single coil tones from either pickup. All of these features come standard on the Starfire I platform. Available in Antique Sunburst. For those looking for something a little extra, the Starfire I SC GVT comes equipped with Guild’s vibrato tailpiece featuring a roller tension bar for additional tonal versatility. Available in Seafoam Green and Snowcrest White finishes.
