An excellent instrument
Turner, 16.05.2018
I'm an amateur guitarist and after several Strats, Teles, Les Pauls, SGs I also wanted to buy a good semi-hollow guitar that delivers a good sound for bluesy stuff. I came across the Guild Starfire IV and ordered it after many searches on the Internet at Thomann. Thomann has still done an optimal setup and after a few days, the guitar has arrived at my place. As always with Thomann carefully packed and the delivery takes place in the delivered case.

The workmanship is impeccable in terms of paint, adjustment, hardware and pickups with controls. Only the pickup switch has a little game aside, but that does not matter in the function.

The sound of the Guild corresponds exactly to my imagination. Very warm sound in the neck position, nice twang in the middle position and snappier in the bridge position. Even with distortion (in my case a marshal blues breaker), the versatility of this guitar is very pronounced. The string position is very flat, without snoring and the neck allows excellent playability. In appearance, this instrument is very similar to the Gibson ES 335, but has its own character in terms of sound.
Ultimately, the sense of sound is always an individual matter of taste. I am more than happy with the guitar and can recommend this instrument with a clear conscience.
