Man, how is it that Guild never made it HUGE.

These things sound and play so good, it should be illegal. Where Gibson 335s are sweet, these snarl and bark in the mids. HUGE,TIGHT bottom end like on most Guilds. I should never have sold my old Starefire IV, but now I got this VI. EBONY BOARD!!! 8lb 5 ounces of tone. First clip.

Nice score Tag! I've never seen a Starfire like that. I have a soft spot for Guilds. I need to pick one of these up to cure my hollowbody craving.

Very, very nice guitar. The tone on that clip is excellent. Very nice playing also. You're going to have everyone on the forum looking for Guilds now :)

Tag, that's some mighty sweet maple. Congrats. To answer your question--I don't know why Guild didn't go way huge. I think their stuff is the best bargain out there these days. Proud Guild owner here too, another story, another time, your thread. Rock on.

Sounds great! Very nice playing too. How are the pickups in higher gain situations?

Also, how's the neck profile?

Very cool 335 alternative.

Hey tag.. excuse my ignorance but what is that little top hat pot near the switch?
That would be the master volume. Starfires had them for some time in the 70's and 80's.

John does a fantastic job of it.

I just might have to add a Starfire to my 335's after hearing these two examples.

Loved yours Tag, a perfect blend of mellow and bite at the same time.

That is sooooooooooo sweet... I looked at that guitar for a while too.

I have had a few guild hollow bodies including SFIII's IV's and an X500 and they are so underrated.

I have a killer orange westerly Guild X170 with super flame all over that is an incredibly well made, playing and sounding guitar.

The SF IVs (and VI like yours) hang with any 335 I have ever played and are more than just an alternative.

I have never played a VI but I have wanted one for years - I think they are pretty rare.

Congratulations and I am jealous.
