GSR Starfire™ VI

Electric | GSR Series
Model #: 3828000837

  • The Starfire™ is one of the most revered and sought after Guild electric guitar models of all time. Introduced in the 1960s, it quickly found favor among many kinds of players with its distinctive sound, excellent playability and quality construction. This classic Guild model now returns in a limited special-run version.

    Blending new and vintage-style design elements, the GSR Starfire™ VI furthers the Guild electric tradition with a modern interpretation of the classic model. It features a spruce top and figured maple back and sides that offer excellent balance, punch and sustain. The Seymour Duncan® Seth Lover pickups offer that most-desired early humbucking pickup tone - smooth, warm, and harmonically rich, with excellent dynamic range. The bound mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard offer comfortable feel and smooth playability.

    Other premium features include a TonePros® Tune-O-Matic-style bridge, Gotoh® die-cast tuners, bone nut, multi-ply binding, vintage-style pickguard, classic Guild “G-shield” controls knobs, mother-of-pearl and abalone inlays, and a nitrocellulose lacquer finish in elegant Antique Burst.

    Each GSR Starfire™ VI comes with a Guild leather strap and deluxe hard-shell case. As noted, this is a special limited run; consult your authorized Guild dealer for availability.
