Andertons Music Demos the Starfire IV and X-175 Manhattan

Andertons Music recently had an opportunity to demo two Guild guitars from the Newark St. Collection – the Starfire IV and X-175 Manhattan, and both instruments received high marks.

“The Guild Starfire IV is a familiar design with a quirky character all of its own,” noted the reputed dealer.  ”The jagged scratchplate, ‘Harp’ tailpiece and distinctive ‘anti-hum’ pickups all add up to a classy vintage looking guitar that work hard and sounds fantastic! With a full bright tone you’d expect from a semi hollow the Starfire IV is a guitar we’re happy to welcome back to production!”

Andertons called the X-175 Manhattan “breathtaking,” with special scrutiny going to some of the guitar’s vintage accoutrements.

“Vintage features like tall frets, harp tailpiece and wooden bridge are all present and correct and you can’t help but feel the history of the guitar when you play it, so bold and authoritative is the tone,” they wrote.
