Guild-Starfire-V-1965-(10)Whilst a good many electric blues players favour Stratocasters or Telecasters [or even thinline Gibsons] we’ve always felt that there are some guitars alongside these iconic instruments that just fit the bill perfectly for blues playing. Buddy Guy, Lightening Hopkins, and the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia all knew a thing or two about guitar tone and all favoured a Starfire V at some point in their career.

The rich humbucking tone and almost vocal quality of these guitars make them the ideal companion for a bluesman and whether clean or overdriven, they are the perfect accompaniment to the blues.

The Guild Starfire V was the upmarket version of the Starfire IV but came equipped with some notable upgraded features including a Bigsby tailpiece, block inlays and a master volume control. The two Guild humbucking pickups are perfectly designed to cut through the mix with a rich and powerful depth alongside a biting attack especially on the bridge pickup, making the guitar ideal for blues rockers who really need to be heard above their bandmates.

So if you want to really get down and play the blues, but stand out from the crowd with your choice in guitar…check out the Starfire V. You won’t be disappointed.
