"Very nice sound; quality throughout"

I'm a Fender fan and thought I'd try this guitar, it's Fender scale and style. I also like the 9.5" radius and most other makers use 12". This is a 10" radius which sounded close enough.First thing I noticed was the weight - in the pictures it looks light and thin, however it is a good sized slab of solid mahogany and it's wider than it looks. It's very comfortable and balanced and the top arm sticks comfortably in my ribs - it's a good fit.The hardware looks substantial, and simple, the neck is a set neck and the fingerboard is a very thick slab of pau ferro. The 10" radius is more comfortable for me than the 9.5" actually. The peghead angles back, no string tree. These things all contribute to the tone which is surprisingly rich and smooth. It reminds me of the Les Paul Studio I used to have, but clearer and more bell-like. It doesn't sound thin like a Fender, there's a lot of gravy around the notes, and sustain until next week. It adds legato to your playing and I think it smooths out flaws in my playing, one of those instruments that plays itself. Setup was perfect out of the box, I haven't had to do a thing to it. Plays easier than anything else I have.Case is good quality (gig bag) but is a little large, seems to be made for a semi-hollow of which I believe Guild has several. I would like a case that doesn't allow the guitar to slide around inside. But my closet doesn't care. It is a thick, padded gig bag.Considering the price, I'd have to call this a great value. It sounds and feels pro. Only problem is fitting it into a genre, it is a very nice sound for pop, clear as a bell, but not exactly twangy or gritty or jazzy. Kind of in the middle of everything. Some artist needs to make it famous.

"Awesome!!"

The Guild Jetstar ST arrived today and it was just what I hoped it'd be and more! The build is exceptional. Comfortable... No heavier than a Strat solid body type. Neck feels great. Action is spot on out of the box. All I had to do was tune it up! Those Little Buckers are phenomenal! I love Mahogany bodies and this is another one to add to that list! 100% satisfied! No gig bag was in the box but I'm sure Zzounds will take care of that. The guitar itself is excellent!

"Fantastic Guitar for the Money"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I ordered this because I wanted something different from my two current guitars, an SG and a Tele. I love humbuckers and single coils, but I thought mini himbuckers would be a great change up. The mini humbuckers fulfilled what I was looking for perfectly.I dont knowcwhy I was expecting a bolt on neck but was very pleased to learn the Jetstar ST has a set in neck. Also, I have severe Psoriatic Arthritis. The neck shape and scale allowed me to play a few hours without my joints paying the price later.Ecerything about this guitar looks, feels, and plays like a guitar twice its price.
