A 12-string semi-hollow like the Guild Starfire I 12-ST instantly calls to mind the jangly sounds of the ‘60s, but don’t be fooled by the Starfire’s sharp looks! This 12-string is capable of much more than your typical chimey cleans, boasting a mahogany arched center block construction and two coil-splittable Guild HB-2 pickups to cover everything from pristine arpeggios to huge distorted rhythm tones. The wide mahogany “U”-style neck and 1-11/16-inch nut width give you plenty of room to maneuver between the string courses, while the Indian rosewood board and flat 12.5-inch radius offer a smooth, comfortable playing experience. Finally, a Tune-o-matic bridge and Guild’s 15:01 tuners offer excellent tuning stability — essential when slinging a 12-string like the Guild Starfire I 12-ST!

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
