Guild Starfire V w/ Bigsby Snowcrest White

Semi acoustic electric guitar
The Starfire V is by design a typical semi-hollow as we know it since the 50s. The laminated mahogany body in combination with a glued-in neck of the same wood brings an emphasis of the low-mids into the sound, which ultimately results in a feeling of warmth. Nevertheless, the typical nasal overtone range of the design remains. The model resonates well and produces powerful resonances even when played dry.
The substantial foundation is replaced by two so-called anti-hum dual coils, humbuckers with slightly less output, in order to preserve the acoustic character of the instrument. Besides the traditional two vilume and tone pots, one for each pickup, the Starfire V has a master control. In this way, interesting combinations can be realised, which can then be controlled centrally.
The Bigsby vibrato gives the user another important design tool. The pitch of the sound can be altered with fine sensitivity. Especially fans of early surf, rockabilly and beat music will appreciate this tool.
