Guild Starfire V with Guild Vibrato - Snow Crest White Reviews
My guitar is GREAT and my experience with Sweetwater by far exceeded my expectations. Follow-up all the way through the sale, order and delivery process. They care.
Beautiful GuitarIt's a great guitar, feels amazing and I love playing it. I'm by no means a professional so I dont have any anecdotes to make but as a personal guitar I play at home, I love it. My other is a fender strat texas special, and it's a completely different feel. I love them both for different reasons. I was initially worried I wouldn't like the ergonomics of it, but it feels great to play. For me, it's a perfect alternative guitar.
Can I just copy the last guy's review!?!?Nah...I won't do that, but I'm equally ecstatic about this guitar!!
I've been drooling over a white Gibson ES-335 since first seeing Alex Lifeson sporting one decades ago but couldn't afford one then, and still can't in 2018. In fact, I've never gotten around to putting an ES-335 in my hands but just can't imagine it feeling or sounding $3,508 dollars better... than this beauty!!
I've heard it classified as a 'poor man's ES-335'. So be it. I feel 'richer' just owning it!!
Guitar arrived set up perfectly, and perfectly in tune out of the box!
I can't wait to get home everyday to play it!
Haven't felt like that since I was 5 and had just gotten a new puppy!!
Dream GuitarFirst, I would like to state that I'm probably the last person who thought they would buy a semi-hollow. Second, this review is completely biased.
I freaking love this guitar and I'm so happy I bought it after about a month of drooling over it. It feels like perfection the moment you pick it up and sounds amazing even unplugged for some quiet practice time. The only issue has been with tuning stability but since this is my first Bigsby I'm willing to call it user error or it just needs more lubrication at the nut and saddles. Besides that, I'm quite content with the hours I've lost track of since purchasing this beauty and Guild will be my first stop for future purchases.
Wonderful GuitarSimply a fantastic instrument. I'd been looking for a guitar for some time, and after many hours of research finally settled on the SF V. When it arrived from Sweetwater it was pretty much ready to play right out of the box! No scratches or dings, the guitar was clean and clearly well-cared for.
I am playing it through an Orange amp, so I can really get that jangly sound. This is my first electric (played acoustic for about 10 years, bass for 15), so I'm enjoying fiddling with the different settings. I can get quite the broad range of sound. The guitar does tend to err towards a brighter sound, but wise management of the pickups and tone allow a dedicated player to get whatever he or she wants.
Only issue so far is mild intonation issues after using the vibrato tailpiece, but this is to be expected. It's frankly more my responsibility to use it more judiciously (which is hard to do, because it's so fun!).
Ah, one last note: as anyone with eyes can see, the guitar is simply beautiful from the photos online. These photos are inaccurate: the SF V is EVEN MORE gorgeous in real life. I bought mine in white - and it looks astounding.
Long atory short, I'd highly encourage anyone to pick this guitar up!
