Jouez le Feu de l?Etoile Noire !
19.08.2016
La Guild Starfire V w/ Bigsby Blk est une belle guitare Archtop à la finition irréprochable et aux caractéristiques techniques et musicales exceptionnelles pour le prix proposé.
Un corps parfait au vernis éclatant, un manche facile sous les doigts, des micros à rendre jaloux la concurrence même la plus réputée et un bel équilibre un peu grave que j?ai toujours retrouvé chez Guild.
La Starfire V est un peu lourde, mais c?est le prix à payer pour avoir une poutre centrale qui donne toute la dynamique nécessaire à cette merveille.
Le Bigsby est simple d?utilisation et ne désaccorde pas l?instrument.
Avant de vous décider pour un modèle équivalent, vous devez l?essayer !
(Heureux possesseur d?une Guild D 25 depuis près de 40 ans et d?une électroacoustique A 5 CE de la même marque je complète ainsi ma collection made to be played)

Une très bonne guitare
F de Caylus, 11.10.2020
J'ai acheté cette guitare après en avoir essayé une multitude (Gretsch 5422, peerless rétromatic, standford marquee, et autre...)
Mon choix s'est arrêté sur la guild pour sa polyvalence, et sa qualité de fabrication en général (bcp d'hésitation avec la Gretsch...).
Je l'utilise pour du studio, et pas encore sur scène, on va attendre un peu avant de risquer de la casser!!!

Je pense à terme remplacer le micro chevalet pour des raisons qui me sont propres.
Ceci est un pris partie, le micro d'origine est très bon, et permet de faire tout type de musique.

Les finitions sont bonnes sur le modèle que j'ai reçu, et je suis plutôt exigeant en la matière.

Vous pouvez y aller sans hésiter, et dans tous les cas: essayez avant d'acheter!!!
