Guild Guitars Goes All Out with New Starfire VI
SANTA MONICA, CA – For decades, Guild Starfire models have been some of Guild’s most beloved, iconic semi-hollow and hollow guitars, with their undeniably retro vibe and unique Guild sound. This year, Guild has chosen to reintroduce the Starfire VI, a beautifully appointed semihollow based on the Newark St. Collection’s best-selling Starfire V. Featuring Guild’s iconic double-cutaway Starfire body shape, the VI has stunning AAA flamed maple top, back, and sides, and a solid centerblock. Dual LB-1 Little Bucker pickups, replicas of Guild’s 1960s smaller size humbucking pickups, offer a range of tones well-suited for a variety of playing styles and genres. The Starfire VI has a three-piece maple/walnut/maple neck and a bound rosewood fingerboard inlaid with mother-of-pearl and abalone V-blocks. It also features a pinned Tune-o-Matic bridge with rosewood base, rosewood bridge, and comes adorned with gold hardware, 5 ply black and ivory purfling, deluxe f-hole and body binding, and a Guild Vibrato Tailpiece. It’s available in a high gloss blonde finish, and includes a hardshell case. Guild’s most deluxe Starfire on the market, the VI has the vintage look, tone, and feel that you can only get from a Guild Starfire.
