Santa Monica, CA – Based on Guild's popular Starfire IV ST, the new Starfire IV ST-12 is a thin body semi-hollow electric with the added power of 6 more strings! The new Starfire IV ST-12 offers guitarists that retro choral, jangly guitar tone defined by The Beatles and The Byrds in the 1960s with modern enhancements. Premium features include an all-mahogany body, solid spruce center block and rosewood fingerboard. It’s thin and comfortable mahogany neck with maple center seam is anything but “clubby”. For this re-issue, Guild made a few key adjustments to its former 12-string electric, the Starfire XII made from '66-'74. This modern version has a Tune-O-Matic bridge with a stop bar tailpiece for increased sustain and stability, imperative for keeping those extra strings in tune. The Starfire IV ST-12 includes dual LB-1 “Little Bucker” pickups, replicas of Guild’s original smaller size humbucking pickups. It is available in Aspen Green & Cherry Red and includes hardshell case.
