I have been looking for a semi-hollow the last six months and finally decided to go for the Guild and couldn't be happier with my decision. Aaron from Sweetwater took care of my order and got me the guitar in 3 days, so awesome customer service as always.
I was a little uncertain about the pickups since I had not had a chance to play the guitar and was going based on video reviews. I could not be happier. It looks like it should cost twice as much as it does, fit and finish is meticulous and the sound exceeded expectations. Nice slim neck, which is what I prefer. At this point, I could not be happier. I am normally a sucker for a neck pickup but the bridge pickup on the Starfire is amazingly clear and present without being harsh. If you are looking for a semi-hollow electric 335 type guitar, you really cannot go wrong with this axe.
