Guild Starfire VI DC Semi-Hollow body Electric Guitar – Kingswood Green

Kingswood Green Guild Starfire VI DC Semi-Hollow body Electric Guitar

The crème of the crop for Guild’s Starfire line, the Starfire VI Special has it all—premium materials, top of the line inlays, and an authentic 1960s design that honours the Starfire’s 60-year heritage while giving today’s players some modern performance enhancements. New for 2023, the “Special” trim package was previously only available on Guild’s upscale Manhattan models and brings aesthetic upgrades in its all-new Kingswood Green metallic finish, DeArmond Dynasonic pickups, and premium gold hardware.

Description

Guild’s iconic double-cutaway Starfire body shape

Featuring Guild’s iconic double-cutaway Starfire body shape, the Starfire VI is crafted with an all-Maple laminate body and solid Spruce centre block that delivers classic Guild semi-hollow tones without sacrificing live playability. With their balanced warmth and versatility, the DeArmond Dynasonic pickups capture a players touch and nuance and offer up a wide range boutique quality tones.

Other premium features on the the Starfire VI include Guild’s unique, three-piece Mahogany/Maple/Mahogany neck, a bound Ebony fingerboard inlaid with Mother-of-Pearl and Abalone V-blocks, and real bone nut. Additional features include a pinned Tune-o-Matic bridge with ebony base, 5-ply black and Ivory purfling, bound F-holes and headstock with Mother of Pearl Guild “Peak” and “Chesterfield” inlays, and a Guild Vibrato Tailpiece. All Starfire VI models include a Guild Deluxe hardshell case.

Blending ’60s Starfire style with 1950s DeArmond tone, Guild’s Starfire I DC is a multi-generational tribute to Guild’s vintage heyday. This guitar’s feedback-resistant semi-hollow maple body and expressive Guild vibrato tailpiece come straight out of the typical double-cut Starfire playbook, paired with a sleek 9.5-inch-radius ebony fingerboard for all the benefits of modern playability. And while the round lows, sparkling trebles, and hi-fi voice of DeArmond Dynasonic pickups are standard on many a Guild, they’re a rare sight to see on a 1960s-style double-cut like this Starfire I DC! Guild finishes this guitar’s utterly refined vibe off with a glittering set of gold hardware, from the Grover Sta-Tite open-gear tuners to a Tune-o-matic bridge to even the pickup switch. Capture the thumping single-coil sound and sultry sonics of Guild’s two most iconic vintage eras with the Guild Starfire 1 DC.
