Description

A Semi-hollow Bass with Fat Tone

Get that classic ’60s bass sound with the Guild Starfire II semi-hollowbody bass guitar. This bass gives you distinctively warm, fat tones that sonically separate it from typical solidbody basses; a sound favored by groups like Jefferson Airplane and the Byrds. Its thinline semi-hollow body gives you much of the organic, resonant sound and rich overtones of a hollow instrument, while a pair of BiSonic pickups deliver the iconic low end you’ve heard on countless records. Plus, its short scale length makes it extra-comfortable to play. When you need a bass tone that sets you apart in a gig-ready instrument, you can turn to the Guild Starfire II bass with confidence.

Exceptionally playable short-scale neck

The short (30.75-inch) scale length of the Starfire bass makes it easier to navigate the fretboard. It’s perfect for beginners and players with smaller hands, but anyone can enjoy this eminently playable semi-hollow bass. The short-scale length lets you comfortably play anywhere on the smooth, beautiful rosewood fingerboard, so just plug the Starfire II bass into your bass amp, and you’ll see what we mean.

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. So instead of giving you a bulky instrument, Guild gave the Starfire II a thinline body style that provides the woody thump of a hollow instrument plus the easy-playing comfort of a traditional bass. Take it from Sweetwater bassists — the Guild Starfire II semi-hollowbody bass has the tones and playability you want in a bass.

Based on the classic ’60s Starfire

Classic rock recordings have no shortage of warm and groovy bass tones served up by hollowbody 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 II semi-hollowbody bass.
