Guild Starfire IV
Guild Starfire IV

Guild’s new Newark St. Collection marks the return of eight classic electric favourites from the 1950s and ’60s, including the Starfire III and IV models.

The original Starfires were highly popular and prized by many guitarists, such as Bob Weir and Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. Their distinctive design and tone make a welcome return.

Both the hollow Starfire III and semi-hollow Starfire IV are equipped with low output pickups designed to deliver a natural, warm and open sound with good clarity.
