Ein hervorragendes Instrument
Turner, 16.05.2018
Ich bin Amateur-Gitarrist und wollte nach verschiedenen Strats, Teles, Les Pauls, SGs auch mal eine gute Semi-Hollow-Gitarre erwerben, die einen guten Sound für bluesige Sachen liefert. Dabei bin ich auf die Guild Starfire IV gestoßen und habe sie nach vielen Recherchen im Internet bei Thomann bestellt. Thomann hat noch ein optimales Setup durchgeführt und nach wenigen Tagen ist die Gitarre bei mir eingetroffen. Wie immer bei Thomann sorgfältig verpackt und die Auslieferung erfolgt in dem im Lieferumfang enthaltenem Koffer.

Die Verarbeitung ist makellos was Lackierung, Einstellung, Hardware und Tonabnehmer mit Reglern angeht. Lediglich der Pickup-Schalter hat ein wenig Spiel zur Seite, was aber in der Funktion keine Rolle spielt.

Der Sound der Guild entspricht genau meinen Vorstellung. Sehr warmer Sound in der Hals-Position, schöner Twang in der Mittelposition und bissiger in der Steg-Position. Auch mit Verzerrer (bei mir ein Marschall-Bluesbreaker) ist die Vielseitigkeit dieser Gitarre sehr ausgeprägt. Die Saitenlage ist sehr flach, ohne zu schnarren und der Hals ermöglicht eine hervorragende Bespielbarkeit. Im Aussehen ähnelt dieses Instrument sehr der Gibson ES 335, hat aber vom Sound her einen eigenen Charakter.
Letztlich ist ja das Soundempfinden immer eine individuelle Geschmacksfrage. Ich bin mehr als glücklich mit der Gitarre und kann dieses Instrument mit gutem Gewissen empfehlen.
