Guild’s Starfire IV semi-hollowbody electric guitar has the graceful feel of the popular Starfire model from the 1960s, but with a thinline body shape that is extremely pleasant to play. You get a more traditional electric guitar feel, but with the organic, resonant tone that only a semi-hollowbody can provide. The tone of the Starfire IV is as different as its appearance, thanks to a pair of hum-canceling LB-1 “Little Bucker” pickups with their own tone and volume settings. Call Westside Music Studio today to add the irresistible sound of the Guild Starfire IV to your collection.

The Guild Starfire IV features a pair of hum-cancelling LB-1 “Little Bucker” pickups. The Little Buckers were originally conceived in the 1960s as an alternative to single-coil pickups. The output is somewhere in the middle of a single-coil and a vintage-style PAF humbucker, with more jangle than a PAF and a little more warmth than a typical single-coil. When you consider the 3-way pickup selector, you’ll realize how wonderful the Starfire IV can sound in almost any genre.
