Guild’s Most Affordable 12-String Electric Guitar!

Guild’s 12-string legacy expands into the Starfire I series with the Starfire I-12. This gig-ready semi-hollow body 12-string offers a wide range of iconic Guild tones in a comfortable and affordable fashion.

Arched Mahogany Body with Mahogany Center Block Construction

The Starfire I-12 features a semi-hollow construction utilizing a mahogany center block for increased sustain and chime from the octave strings and reduced feedback. Retaining the airy, crisp tone you would expect from a semi-hollow body. 

Made with a sturdy arched mahogany top, back, and sides, the Starfire I-12 electric guitar maintains classic Guild tone and response without sacrificing live playability. 

24 3/4” Scale Mahogany Neck With Comfortable 1 11/16″ Nut Width

Ease and playability are key to the Starfire I-12. The 24 3/4” scale length and modern thin “U“ neck profile provide a fast, smooth playing neck, while the 18th fret neck-to-body joint provides easy access to the upper register of the fretboard. Tune-o-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece ensure solid intonation and great sustain.

Guild HB-2 Humbuckers with Push/Pull Coil Split

Equipped with Guild HB-2 humbuckers, the Starfire I-12 offers a wide array of vintage and modern 12-string electric tones. Inspired by Guild’s sought-after HB-1 pickups, HB-2 humbuckers are constructed using Alnico II magnets for rich, full tone, a perfect complement to the wide range of frequencies produced by a 12-string guitar. Complete with a fully bound body, bound 12.5” radius rosewood fretboard, classic Guild knobs, three-step black pickguard, nickel Guild headstock logo, and full gloss Cherry Red finish.

PUSH/PULL COIL-SPLITTING FEATURE

Pull up on either pickup's volume knob to engage coil split mode for each pickup individually, allowing for lush humbucking tones, jangly single tones, and every combination in between using the three-way toggle switch.
