The guitar is stunning, let's get that out of the way. I had played both the starfire III and IV in a local shop and loved both, but this SFV exceeded my expectations in terms of feel, stability and attention to detail.

From my experience, the Newark street guitars are among the best in their price range. They are not cheap, but you feel and hear the quality.

Pros:
- looks
- clear, articulate pickups
- the finish, the tall frets, the bigsby, the inlays, the the dot markers on the knobs are all part of what makes this instrument so special
- The neck width and depth
- incredible sustain

Cons:
- yellow cover on pickup switch: looks off to me, swapped for a cream coloured tip from my sorrento
- floating bridge
- bit heavy for a semi hollow guitar (mahogany...)

Highly recommended

Guild Starfire V

Steven5344, 18.08.2015
I was looking for a 335 type guitar, with all of the quality, but not quite the eye watering cost of an actual 335. I've had a Guild X170 for a few years so I knew they could build a quality guitar. I can't find a fault with this instrument, build, sound quality and playability are all excellent. It looks pretty good too!! This is a lot of guitar for the money
