  • 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 Bi-Sonic™ pickup, the classic Cherry Red finish and a great deal more. The welcome return of a true Guild classic.
