9.8 of 10 Condition (a few tiny, superficial nicks to the finish)
When this one came in I wasn't sure as to whether this was an original pickup or not. I did a little research and found out that the usual pickup (top mounted full sized humbucker) was made for Guild by Hagstrom as were some of the other parts guild used. I then did some further digging and found out that the pickup on this one...

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...
Other than my family, my two great passions are basses and
motorcycles. I wanted to be able to combine the two by creating an
upright electric bass that I could take to gigs on a bike, and get
off the bandstand before the horn players. The bass would have to be
compact, sound good and be completely functional.
The original 30" scale Kydd Carry-On electric upright bass...

Sparkling Ron Burdundy - What a cool color! This bass plays and sounds NUTS. She is sporting a Dimarzio Model 1 with the toggle neatly hidden under the guard. THE ORIGINAL PICKUP IS IN THE CASE. She's all there. The bass is heavily checked and looks oh so cool. What a great bass. The Dimarzio really lights this bass up! She has a period correct Guild Starfire HSC that fits like a glove.
