Guild Starfire I SC Newark St Hollow-Body, Antique Burst
Based on the timeless Starfire II and III single cut body shape, the Guild 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 mean for a fast, smooth playing neck, and the premium Guild Vintage 18 tuners and Tune-o-matic bridge ensure that 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 Antique Sunburst. For those looking for something a little extra, the Starfire I SC with Guild Vibrato Tailpiece comes equipped with Guild’s premier vibrato tailpiece with roller tension bar for additional tonal versatility.
