Guild Starfire I DC Pelham Blue
Featuring an arched top and back made from Maple along with duel HB-2 Alnico II humbucker pickups and creative Vibrato Tailpiece this Guild Starfire I DC Pelham Blue is a mighty fine guitar. With 1-11/16 nut size and intuitive 24-3/4 scale thin U neck this shimmering Pelham Blue beauty offers superb playability and well as classic looks. If you are on a search for a terrific all round high value semi guitar build that can turn its hand to anything and would work well in any studio or live setting this Guild Starfire 1 DC really should be on your radar.
This is what the guys at Guild have to say about this Pelham Blue version Starfire 1 DC - Expanding on the double cut body shape made famous by the Guild Starfire, the Starfire I DC features semi-hollow body construction utilizing a mahogany center block for reduced feedback and clear sustain. Retaining the airy, crisp tone you would expect from a semi-hollow body. The 24 3/4” scale length and modern thin “U“ neck profile provide a fast, smooth playing neck, while the 18th fret neck-to-body joint provides easy access to the upper register of the fretboard. Premium Guild Vintage 18 tuners with 18:1 gear ratio 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.
