Guild Starfire III with Vibrato Tailpiece Electric Guitar

Guild’s Starfire III is equipped with features of extra advantage to the rock ‘n’ roll guitarist who seeks a combination of flashy appearance and extraordinary tonal possibilities. Stellar features are all here, including the extra-thin hollow body, graceful single Florentine cutaway and brilliant Cherry Red finish. The welcome return of a rocking early-’60s favorite with a personality all its own.
The Guild LB-1 Little Bucker was first offered in 1962 as an upgrade from single coil pickups. Tonally, it has a little more jangle then a traditional PAF humbucker. The resistance and inductance of these pickups sit comfortably between a typical single coil and typical humbucker – contributing to the airy nature of the LB-1 without compromising its warmth. The LB-1 has a unique footprint, placing it in-between a mini-bucker and a full size humbucker.
