Guild Starfire Bass Cherry Red

Guild Starfire Bass Cherry Red

Brand: Guild | Stock Id: GUILD-SF-BASSCH

Semi-hollow. From the jangle of the Byrds to the psychedelia of Jefferson Airplane to countless other acts, many sounds of the ’60s were underpinned by the deep and indispensable sound of the Starfire™ Bass, and players can now enjoy that rich sound and feel once again. Guild’s new Starfire Bass has it all—the extra-thin semi-hollow body, the elegant double-cutaway design, a single powerful BiSonic™ pickup, and a great deal more. Also available in Black. The welcome return of a true Guild classic.

Due to ongoing product development efforts, specifications are subject to change without notice.

The Guild BS-1 BiSonic pickup was originally found in many of the solid and hollow body Guild basses in the 1960s and 70s. The BS-1 has developed a cult following resulting in several reissue versions and designs, including the famous Darkstar by Fred Hammon and BS-DS by Curtis Novak. Wound to 6.4K Ohms, similar in specification to a Hammon Darkstar, the Guild BS-1 provides a refined modern tone in a classic package.
