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!!

A hollowbody for all fles
16.02.2016
If you are looking for a well-engineered, top-sounding hollow-body guitar with a special touch, the Guild Starplayer III is ideally suited. It does not have to be Gibson or Gretsch ...

The guitar came safely packaged in a sturdy suitcase and was already well adjusted from the factory.

Visually, it is a true eye-catcher and the processing there is nothing to complain about. The only downside is the somewhat wobbly three-way switch for the pickups. In the middle position, it tends to vibrate when hard, which produces a slight rattling or rattling. Listening is only possible if the guitar is played unreinforced - but then it is quite disturbing.

The amp is convincing at the amp. The bridge pickup sounds crisp and fresh, chords come tied wonderfully differentiated and punchy over. The perfect rhythm sound for Roots Rock, old country, rock'n'roll or blues. Also lead can the Guild wonderful, due to the Hollowbody construction, however, it is not a sustainwunder. The sustainblock carries its name for good reason - and the Starplayer III does not exist. At the neck pickup it becomes warm, soft and jazzy. Especially clean played a real ear candy.

The neck of the Guild is super in the hand, the guitar is wonderfully light and hangs well on the belt. I would highly recommend it.
