Guild Starfire I Jet 90 Electric Guitar - Satin Black

You are looking at Serial Number: IsG201050881

Meet the Bad Boy from Newark St.

Guild brings its iconic Starfire single-cut archtop body to bear on a slick new performance platform: the Newark St. Starfire I Jet 90. The 6-in-line headstock and triple Franz P-90 pickups give the Jet 90 a mean modern rock aesthetic. But thanks to its versatile 6-way rotary selector, the Jet 90 handles even traditional styles of jazz and rockabilly with timeless Guild grace. Bridge-leaning pickup positions lend a toothy P-90 bite to all your favorite rock riffs. And neck-leaning positions supply a warmth and fullness that rivals some venerated old-school archtops. What makes the Jet 90 a solid live performer is its center-blocked chambered maple body, which keeps weight nice and light for long sessions onstage while controlling feedback for cranked-up numbers. Factor in an expressive Guild vibrato tailpiece, nickel-plated bridge and tuners, and a mouthwatering satin poly finish with matching headstock and head-to-toe ivory ABS binding, and the Newark St. Guild Starfire I Jet 90 ticks an impressive number of boxes at an appealing price.

Semi-hollow construction

A center-block, semi-hollow construction — hollow on both sides with a solid mahogany core running through the center — gives the Starfire I Jet 90 electric guitar that classic Guild tone and response without sacrificing live playability. Together with its quality tonewoods, comfortable neck, expressive vibrato bridge, and daring electronics, the Starfire I Jet 90 has all the makings of a pro instrument at a very reasonable price.

Guild vibrato tailpiece

The Guild-branded vibrato tailpiece installed on the Starfire I Jet 90 supplies "big" (if you know what we mean) expression and control. From caterwauling rockabilly leads to cascading waves of texture and color, you'll find all the nuance you need in the Starfire I Jet 90's expressive vibrato system.


3 Guild Franz P-90 pickups

Early Guild hollowbodies featured handmade-in-Queens Franz pickups modeled after the original P-90 design. The Starfire I Jet 90 comes loaded with three Guild Franz P-90 pickups to re-create that vintage-y Guild goodness. Run them wide open, and these single-coils deliver fat, biting tones. Roll back the volume, and they clean up to produce an open and chiming tone that’s ideal for jazz. You also get a 6-way rotary selector to dial in the exact picking blend you're searching for. Take it from Capital City Guitars: the Jet 90 can cover some significant sonic ground — all you need to do is take the time to experiment with it.

6-way selector switch

If you're the type of player who loves finding the perfect pickup combination (aren't we all?), you'll love the Starfire I Jet 90's 6-way rotary pickup selector. Together with the soulful trio of of Franz P-90 pickups and master volume and tone controls, it's a surefire recipe for expressive tone and a great time, in any performance setting.
