This marks the welcome return of a highly popular semi-hollow Guild classic, with a graceful double-cutaway thinline body and incomparable tone and feel. The original Starfire IV was prized by many guitarists from the mid-1960s onward as a distinctively rocking instrument, and its spirit and design pervade this new model. Other premium features include a rock-solid three-piece neck, special vintage-style LB-1 “Little Bucker” pickups and the classically brilliant Cherry Red.

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 than 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-humbucker and a full size humbucker.
