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. In classic style, this double-cutaway guitar features an elegantly arched maple top, back, and sides. The 24 3/4” scale length and modern thin“U“ neck profile make 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 with classic vibrato tailpiece ensure that the strings are easy to tune and stay in tune, no matter how much shimmer you add. 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.
