    Comments about Guild Starfire VI Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    This guitar was even more impressive than I thought it would be and it's an absolute blast to play. I love the looks, sound, and feel of this instrument. The guitar has great balance and the neck is very comfortable with pleasing intonation at all points. The pups are nice and responsive, with sharp trebles and roomy bass, and the three-way switch and control pots allow for a nice mixture of tones. Comes with a nice, solid hard-case. Overall: this instrument package is very, very impressive for the money.

    Comments about Guild Starfire VI Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar for its classic appearance, on impulse, a real beauty to behold.
    I did discipline myself to test play it on my Polytone amp with my vintage MXR Uni Vibe vibrato/chorus effect pedal in a Guitar Center practice room, before taking delivery. I was amazed by the play-ability of this guitar, even with a set of 11 gauge strings. I had a guitar center sales rep check the the tuning and intonation with my Fender Yngwie Malmsteen Clip-on Chromatic Tuner, and it was dead on right out of the case, which, by the way, is a very nice case with purple lining. I play mostly finger style guitar with a mellow touch of jazz. This guitar lends it self well to my solo playing style, as an amateur, that still plays by ear, after 52 years, and still can't read a single note. Needless to say, I took this guitar home with me.
