Thanks for checking out this beautiful 1960 Starfire!
the very first year of the Starfire series.
With a full 50 years under it's belt, this guitar naturally has a fair amount
of player's wear, but no damage, no obvious repairs,
and no repairs needed.
OHSC!
Rare "Ghost Label"
Set up currently with low action and light gauge flatwounds,
She plays like butter, and sounds, well, like a high quality
vintage guitar should. (contact me for sound samples).
Tons of vintage vibe and mojo is included!
The originality of this guitar is a bit hard to determine, so I'd like to
share what I was told by Hans Moust, author of "The Guild Guitar Book",
and the world's foremost authority on Guild guitars:

quote:

Hello Z,

You are correct that it is a Starfire from 1960.
However, it is written up as a Starfire I in the ledgers from 'final
assembly', so it started out as a single pickup guitar.
I have
several similar Starfires in my database from that same period and some
of them, with very close serial numbers, have the same black DeArmond
pickups just like the one in the fingerboard position of your guitar. It
is possible that the guitar was set up later as a double pickup guitar.
Actually that would happen quite a lot at Guild but I could not find
any notes in the ledgers, which does not automatically mean it didn't
happen at the factory.
The only thing that is a little weird is the
use of two different style pickups, but then again .......... it still
might be factory original.

All the parts that were used, (pickup,
knobs, indicator nails and switch/ring), are all correct for that
particular period.The white pickup is a style that was used for a very
short time and they are kind of rare on any Guild guitar.

Hope this is of some help and
that you will enjoy the guitar.

Sincerely,

Hans Moust
