Guild Starfire IV Black

Guild Starfire IV Black

Brand: Guild | Stock Id: GUILD-SF4BK

Semi-hollow body. This marks the welcome return of a highly popular semi-hollow Guild classic, with a graceful double-cutaway thinline body and incomparable tone and feel. The original Starfire IV was prized by many guitarists from the mid-1960s onward as a distinctively rocking instrument, and its spirit and design pervade this new model. Other premium features include a rock-solid three-piece neck, special vintage-style LB-1 “Little Bucker” pickups and the classically brilliant Black finish. Also available in Cherry Red.

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

The Guild LB-1 “Little Bucker” was first offered in 1962 as an upgrade from single coil pickups. Tonally, it has a little more jangle than a traditional PAF humbucker. The resistance and inductance of these pickups sit comfortably between a typical single coil and typical humbucker – contributing to the airy nature of the LB-1 without compromising its warmth. The LB-1 has a unique footprint, placing it in-between a mini-bucker and a full size humbucker.
