Product Description

Starfire IV ST Maple in Emerald Green
series: newark st. collection

The Starfire IV ST 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 maple body, a solid spruce center block, rosewood fingerboard, and Guild‰Ûªs 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 Maple includes dual LB-1 ‰ÛÏLittle Bucker‰Û pickups, replicas of Guild‰Ûªs original smaller size humbucking pickups. Available in Emerald Green or Vintage Sunburst, and includes hardshell case.

The Guild LB-1 ‰ÛÏLittle Bucker‰Û was first offered in 1962 as an upgrade from single coil pickups. Tonally, it has a little more jangle then a traditional PAF humbucker. The resistance and inductance of these pickups sit comfortably between a typical single coil and typical humbucker ‰ÛÒ contributing to the airy nature of the LB-1 without compromising its warmth. The LB-1 has a unique footprint, placing it in-between a mini-bucker and a full size humbucker.
