Special Order

A Classic '60s Hollowbody Returns

Guild's Starfire IV semi-hollowbody electric guitar brings you the graceful feel of the popular Starfire model from the '60s, with a thinline body style that's incredibly comfortable to play. You get a feel that's closer to a standard electric guitar, but with the organic, resonant tone you can only get from a semi-hollowbody. And the Starfire IV's tone is as distinct as its looks, with a pair of hum-canceling LB-1 "Little Bucker" pickups with their own tone and volume controls to fine-tune your sound. Call Sweetwater to add the undeniably sweet sound of the Guild Starfire IV to your collection today.

Guild Starfire IV Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Based on a classic Guild semi-hollowbody
  • 3-piece neck for long-lasting playability
  • Rich tone from a pair of Anti-Hum pickups
Based on a classic Guild hollowbody

Based on the Starfire from the '60s, this Guild Starfire IV semi-hollowbody packs all the mojo that made the original such a popular guitar during the rock revolution. Dual humbuckers and the thinline design make this guitar as ready for rock as it is for country or blues.

3-piece neck for long-lasting playability

Multi-piece necks are stronger and more rigid than single-piece necks, resisting twisting and warping over the years. Treat it well, and you'll get a lifetime of exceptional playability from the Guild Starfire IV semi-hollowbody.

Wide-ranging tone from a pair of humbucking pickups

The Guild Starfire IV is outfitted with a pair of smaller, hum-canceling LB-1 "Little Bucker" pickups. Originally designed in the 1960s, the Little Buckers were an alternative to single-coil pickups. The output sits somewhere between a single-coil and a vintage-style PAF humbucker, offering more jangle than a PAF, but a little more warmth than a traditional single-coil. Factor in the 3-way pickup selector, and you'll discover how good the Starfire IV can sound in just about any genre.

Guild Starfire IV Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Thinline semi-hollowbody based on the '60s Guild Starfire
  • Hum-canceling LB-1 pickups
  • Exceptional tone and looks from laminated mahogany back, sides, and top
  • 3-piece mahogany/maple/mahogany neck for long-term playability
  • Grover Sta-Tite tuners give you excellent tuning stability
  • Hard case included
Bring back the '60s-rock vibe with the Guild Starfire IV!
