The underated hero of 1960s American electric guitar making. Introducing the Guild Starfire II. The tone here is creamy and warm with rich lows, all the way the twangy, singing, garage-y highs with the bridge pickup. Slung by some of my personal favourite guitar slingers such as Dave Davies (The Kinks) & James Kirk (Orange Juice) amongst many others! Our example is in great condition and includes its original guild hardcase.
