"GREAT BUILD...Guild Starfire III Electric Guitar"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Received the guitar very fast, a box in a box in a hard case, The case is top notch. The looks and finish were outstanding, not one flaw and the thinner neck makes for easier movement. This is the first time I had 11 size strings on a guitar, the thicker strings match perfectly to make playing such a breeze that it is hard to put it down. I play longer because it is so comfortable and easier. The set up was correctly done out of the case, low the way I prefer.Then I plugged it in and was blown away, the sound had so much depth and the sustain was the longest I have ever heard on any guitars I own, this is the first hollow body electric, my guitars are all solid body, and after 2 days of searching the sound/tone is immense, from crystal clear jazz, heavy metal to twangy country and a few new tones I have never heard before. Now I know why players prefer the hollow body for versatility. The Guild "Little Buckers" pickups are a different unique sounding pickups,different but in a really good way.This Guild is made of mahogany, and finished perfectly with a thin clear cherry red , but the color does not make it sound better but the wood does and it is a larger body but light to the feel. Once you put on this guitar it fits like a glove and makes me feel really great and excited to play the ebony fingerboard and the narrow jumbo frets are really stout and finished perfectly. The Guild Tune O Matic bridge has an ebony base along with the Grover® Sta-Tite™ Open-Gear tuners keep the strings in tune along with the Guild Vibrato Tailpiece Hollow Body - Aluminum adds to the lightness of the whole guitar.
50 years, play just for fun now I did play in bands when younger
I love the chillwave ragtime and I'm sure I have played it, yea I'm sure? But just mostly rock n roll
