GUILD STARFIRE V (5) GUITAR in mint condition.  Serial number: CH002215.  This eye catcher has a beautiful blonde finish that looks remarkable - barely played - and the case is likewise in terrific condition.  This is a guitar that will really attract attention onstage. It has classic appeal.  The laminated curly maple body has a nicely defined and rather varied grain with a quilted quality that changes when light hits it from different angles.  This guitar looked like new when I bought it 5 or 6 years ago, and it has not left our smoke-free home during my ownership – not even to be on a stage.
Guild guitars have a reputation for being very well-crafted, especially those built before they moved their operations to California. This guitar was built in Westerly, Rhode Island - before the move - and it is a testament to the historic Guild quality. Though I don't know the year it was built, but my guess would be right around 2000.  
This fine instrument is in completely original condition, with 2 Guild humbucking pickups, a Guild Bigsby vibrato, roller bridge, Grover RotoMatic tuning machines and a master volume control.  According to the link below, the Starfire V is slightly deeper than the Starfire IV.  This guitar has a 24 3/4" scale length, a 3 piece mahogany/maple 22 fret neck that joins the body at the 18th fret, a rosewood fingerboard and block inlays.  A center tone block runs the length of the body.  The dimensions of the body are:  1 7/8 " thick, 16 3/8 " wide, 20 1/4 " long.
The retail list price in 2001 was $2,399.99 for the guitar and $225 for the case (see link below).  This great guitar will certainly be appreciated by any discriminating owner/player. Good luck with your bidding.
