Remember the Starfire™ bass? This Guild® Starfire semi-hollow bass guitar brings back that classic bass from the '60s, favored by groups like Jefferson Airplane and the Byrds. The thinline semi-hollowbody is comfortable to play, but gives you the organic, resonant sound and haunting overtones of a hollowbody instrument. The Bi-Sonic humbucking pickup is positioned just right to give you the iconic tone you've heard on countless records. When you need distinctive bass tone in a gig-ready instrument, you can turn to the Guild Starfire bass every time.
Guild Starfire Semi-hollowbody Bass Guitar
- Short scale neck for tonal magic
- Thinline semi-hollowbody for comfortable playing and rich tone
- Based on the classic '60s Starfire
Short scale neck for tonal magic
Of course the short (30.75") scale length of the Starfire bass makes it easier to navigate the fretboard, and is perfect for beginners and players with smaller hands. But did you know that the scale length of a guitar or bass has a direct impact on its tone? The harmonics your bass guitar generates are spaced along the strings based on the length of the strings - shorter strings mean the harmonics are packed in tighter, giving any note you play more harmonic richness than a longer scale would. Just plug the Starfire bass into your bass amp and you'll see what we mean, as notes come alive and cut through the mix without becoming overbearing.
Thinline semi-hollowbody for comfortable playing and rich tone
Try as you may, you just can't get the same vibrant, overtone-rich sound of a hollowbody bass with a traditional solidbody. But instead of giving you a bulky instrument, Guild gave the Starfire a thinline body style that gives you the woody thump of a hollow instrument plus the easy-playing comfort of a traditional bass.
Based on the classic '60s Starfire
Classic rock recordings have no shortage of warm and groovy bass tones served up by hollobody instruments. Bands like the Byrds and Jefferson Airplane relied on the original Starfire bass for their rhythmic foundation. You can get that vibe too, with the Guild Starfire semi-hollowbody bass.
