Expanding on the double cut body shape made famous by the Starfire IV, V, and VI, the Starfire I DC features semi-hollowbody construction utilizing a mahogany center block for reduced feedback and clear sustain. The Starfire I DC retains the airy, crisp tone you would expect from a semi-hollowbody. The Cherry Starfire I DC features an elegantly arched mahogany top, back, and sides; while the Pelham Blue model features an elegantly arched maple top, back, and sides. The 24 3/4” scale length and modern thin“U“ neck profile mean for a fast, smooth playing neck, and the 18th fret neck to body joint provides easy access to the upper register of the fretboard. Premium Guild Vintage 18 tuners with 18:1 gear ratio and Tune-o-matic bridge ensure that the strings are easy to tune and stay in tune. An injection of rich, vintage tone is provided by Guild’s own HB-2 Alnico II humbuckers, and the included 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 Cherry Red. For those looking for something a little extra, the Starfire I DC with Guild Vibrato Tailpiece comes comes equipped with Guild’s premier vibrato tailpiece with roller tension bar for additional tonal versatility.
