Winner: John Shipman
Draw date: 10/6/21
Eric Clapton, Eva Cassidy, Jeff Buckley, Muddy Waters...the list goes on and on. It's fair to say that over the years Guild have racked up a pretty impressive roster of players and it's easy to see why. This awesome single-cut body Starfire features classic Guild styling showing off what they do best.
Here's what Guild have to say:
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.
