    DeArmond Starfire

    DeArmond StarfirePublished on 03/17/04 at 15:00
    Purchased this guitar on closeout. Paid 250 american currency,

    Clean bright sound replicating a decent ES-335, sturdy semihollow Jazzbox, above average construction for an imported semihollow design guitar, excellent Pickups, great action

    solid setneck design, sharp looking guitar, very comparable to the Epiphone Sheriton. Nicer pickups

    I've done head-to-heads with the semihollows, imports, as well as american-made models, this is along the top of the line, and given it's low pricetag, a real "bang for the buck"

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is a classic trs head tilted 3 +3, D-profile, well-cut not too large (even when I have big pognes) but requires a little warming Prior Otherwise it provides the cramp.
    22 medium frets with no burrs rsiduelle. The 18th junction box.
    Access in acute is not one of ease MODEL (it's not a guitar shredding tapping ...) but for a game jazzy no worries.
    it is well balance and can play both standing, sitting sprawled at the bottom of his sofa ... avoid even when the position slash style, the cashier at the knees ... it nievau is not for a body and its dimensions will remind you quickly.
    in weight, was not going ... to lumbago.
    sound: a sound no problem!

    SOUNDS

    Two double coils directly made in US animate bte ... and a really warm.
    the neck pickup is a velvety delight the ears of all lovers of jazz and whatever personal volume ... I use most often with too much change at the level of acute super ... hot.
    the bridge pickup when he possde a potato hell.
    Incisive bite frankly wish it, producing a saturation of the most joyous and crisp as long as you send it in a good amp lamp! with the one you can really do anything of crunchy fat dropD well ... so if I do!

    rglages: two sets of knobs Volume / Tone + a 3 position toggle (neck, neck / bridge, bridge)
    knobs fairly linear overall, noting that position is the middle volume of the bridge that will drive the two microphones simulanment.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I possde this little gem for the past three years.
    This is a guitar that has not had the chance to be well distributed in our counters, a rare quality of a report the quality unbeatable price era (j ' had to pay in the 700 with tui) ...
    a mouth and a prsence not possible, a noise footprint indniable.
    c'tait short ... if I repeat the same Rasht eyes closed.
    it's stupid but it no longer makes her cousin appears in squier under the same name ... but it trs significantly worse in terms of quality ...

    Made in Korea, the handle very playable, very end, as the 335 (real) De Armond pickups humbucker
    I got this guitar in 97-98, since sold to pay my GITE
    grrr ...

    UTILIZATION

    to see above the handle.
    Weight ha ... c'tait has a serious problem. she was offering heavy .... my god! :)
    and most importantly, dsquilibre, sitting on the right leg for right-handed, she fell, c'tait not unusual to find playing on the fretboard! : /
    it was imperatively him even add a strap to play seated.
    has less adpter position "classic", the ass between the legs ... not easy.
    Sound.
    gniallissime! ... good I'll quibble a tiny, tiny, lacking in the bass (These grave found in Fender)

    gniallissime! ... good I'll quibble a tiny, tiny, lacking in the bass (These grave found in Fender)
    compensated by a sort of natural compression that gave him a blues in his inimitable
    the sound of a saturated heat incomparable with Hot Rod (I played the top of the era)

    and its clear ... gnial except this slight lack of bass depth strata for example U.S.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've used for 2 years. replaced by a home Ibanez AS73 see anything.
    I remember having bought Backstage at Pigalle (half exchange against an aria)
    I had paid 4,500 francs in the era of 700 to 900 euros! lol. that's why guys who sell 650 euro now .... er ... s'grattent not there eh!
    if I saw 400 euro, now the right away, I would send a collector shit!
