Starfire II ST in Natural

Finish Options:

 

Introducing the Starfire II ST, a semi-hollow guitar with a graceful single Florentine cutaway and extra thin mahogany body. The Starfire II ST comes equipped with dual LB-1 Little Bucker pickups, replicas of Guild’s original smaller size humbucking pickups. These pickups, which have a footprint that falls in between a full size humbucker and mini-bucker, define the Starfire II’s uniquely-Guild sound. Other premium features include a mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard, elegant ivory white body binding, and a beautiful high gloss natural finish. This model features a Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for increased sustain and stability. The Starfire II is a welcome addition to the Starfire family, offering Guild’s classic vibe and vintage tone.

List Price: $1,180

A Closer Look at the Starfire II ST

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.
