STARFIRE IV ST LEFTY in BLACK

The Starfire IV ST Left-handed puts a modern twist on a highly popular semi-hollow Guild classic. With its graceful double cutaway and thinline body, the original Starfire IV was prized by many guitarists from the mid-1960s onward for its incomparable tone and feel. Premium features include an all-mahogany body, a solid spruce center block, rosewood fingerboard, and Guild’s hallmark mahogany neck with maple center seam. This model features a Tune-O-Matic bridge with a stopbar tailpiece for increased sustain and stability. The Starfire IV ST Left-Handed includes dual LB-1 “Little Bucker” pickups, replicas of Guild’s original smaller size humbucking pickups. Includes hardshell case.

List Price: $1,710
