Hidden Gem

Anthony287, 05.10.2015
Received my Guild Starfire iii from Thomann's a couple of days ago. The Guitar comes in a really good quality hard case. The guitar is constructed using Mahogany for the body and with the application of the Cherry red finish is absolutely stunning. Being a semi it is of a nice weight and plays like a dream. I love Blues Music and this guitar has a wonderful authentic sound just right for Blues or indeed any form of rock. It has 2 humbuckers and comes somewhere between the "PAF" sound and P90s. Through a good Alnico speaker it is pure, sweet and cutting.
I could not beat Thomann's price so was absolutely thrilled and happy to become the proud owner of my first Guild. I have nearly 30 other guitars ranging from Gibson, Fender,Hofner, Burns,Harmony, Gretsch etc. I am confident that this Guild is on a par and therefore recommend any prospective buyer to give one a go.
Rock on!!

Starfire III

Vintageguitar, 27.12.2013
Accurate and well-engineered Hollowbody produced in Korea in the same factory as the Electromatics of Gretsch, with only the difference that the Guild is authentic and original, which can not be said of the Cheap Gretsches.
The pickups are more likely to be underwound, they are said to have a very low impedance, producing, however, nice, dynamic cleandounds.
In the crunch area, this guitar also scores points, but at higher distortion levels, it is only conditionally usable, since the hollow body is already very inclined to feedback. If you buy such a guitar, you will probably play less about a rectifier.

For me this guitar is worth every penny, clear purchase recommendation!
