The Guild Starfire IV Transparent Cherry Red is a thinline, semi-hollow guitar that is based on the original Starfire IV model from the 1960s. It combines classic, vintage tones with modern comfort and playability and it was made from the finest, high-quality materials. A quality hard case is included.
This guitar is equipped with two classic humbuckers that were developed in 1962. These LB-1 ‘Little Buckers’ are dual-coil pickups with Alnico 5 magnets. The bridge pickup has a resistance of 5,06K, while the neck pickup has a 7,2K resistance. They sound a bit more jangly than standard PAF humbuckers and they have a warm, yet airy tonality. The sound of the Little Buckers can be described as sitting in between a mini-humbucker and a traditional, full-sized humbucker.
