The Guild Starfire I Bass combines classic hollow body bass tone with an affordable price point. A contemporary twist on the classic Starfire Bass, this model boasts modern features tailored for today’s bassists. The sleek 2.4” body thickness, inward-shifted neck, 30 ¾” scale length, and 1 ½” nut width make it a compact, player-friendly choice, ideal for young musicians and stage performers seeking enhanced mobility.
Ensuring tuning stability and easy adjustments, the Tune-o-matic bass bridge takes center stage, complemented by the Guild harp tailpiece that pays homage to the bass's upright predecessors. Elevating your sonic possibilities, Guild’s BC-1 BiCoil pickups feature hum-resistant nickel covers and Alnico 5 magnet construction. Blend the semi-hollowbody's organic resonance with volume and tone controls, sculpting a wide tonal spectrum from contemporary sharpness to vintage warmth.
Engage the push-pull vintage switch by pulling up the Volume Knob to infuse your sound with added presence, reminiscent of vintage Hollowbody basses' parallel pickup setup.
