Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 2022 Guild Newark St Collection Starfire I DC in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, upgraded with a premium hardshell case. This modern iteration of the Starfire platform features a semi-hollow maple body with a mahogany center block, a mahogany neck capped with an Indian rosewood fretboard, a pair of HB-2 Alnico II humbuckers with push/pull coil taps, a Bigsby-style vibrato, and a gloss Emerald Green finish.

The semi-hollow construction and tonewood complement result in a warm, yet immediate natural acoustic response for the HB-2 humbuckers. These pickups feature Alnico II construction, and are visually and tonally reminiscent of the iconic HB-1 anti-hum pickup originally featured in ‘60s Starfires, delivering a powerful, articulate range of tones, balancing definition and warmth. Additionally, the push/pull coil taps at the Volume knobs enable single coil sparkle and snap. Weighing 7lbs 8oz, this Starfire I DC has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
