“Introducing the Starfire II ST, a hollowbody 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, rosewood 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.”
Guild Starfire guitars have been utilized by so many players including: Buddy Guy, Tom Waits, Lightnin' Hopkins, Tom Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Ray Davies of the Kinks, and perhaps most famously, Jerry Garcia.

Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
