Guild Reintroduces Black Starfire Models

starfire_IV_black_front Guild continues to build out their Newark St. Collection with new options on popular models. For the first time in decades, guitarists can easily get a hold of a Guild Starfire III, Starfire IV, or Starfire V in a sleek, Black finish. This highly desired option was only available for a short period of time, and continues to be one of the most sought after on the Starfire models. All three of these guitars are built with mahogany tops, backs, and sides, have a comfortable, extra thin body depth, and include a hardshell case. Guild’s “Anti-Hum” dual-coil neck and bridge pickups are replicas of the original 1960s pickups, featured on all three models. The Starfire III is the only fully hollow model of the three, boasting a graceful single Florentine cutaway and a Guild vibrato tailpiece. The Starfire IV is a semi-hollow guitar with a double cutaway, most famously paired with Buddy Guy in the 1960s, and more recently, in the hands of indie artist Feist. The Starfire V is also a semi-hollow guitar with a double cutaway, block inlays, additional master volume knob, and comes equipped with a Guild vibrato tailpiece. The Starfire III, IV, and V remain the heart of the Newark St. Collection, offering Guild’s classic vibe and vintage tone.
