Guild

Description

The Starfire IV ST Flamed Maple 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 flamed maple body, a solid maple center block, rosewood fingerboard, and Guilds 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 Flamed Maple includes dual LB-1 Little Bucker pickups, replicas of Guilds original smaller size humbucking pickups. Includes hardshell case.
