Guild Starfire IV ST-12 in Archtop Electric Guitar- Shoreline Mist


If you’re craving that 60s choral, jangly guitar tone defined by the Beatles and the Byrds, the Starfire IV ST 12-String both sounds and looks the part. Based on our popular Starfire IV ST, this thinbody semi-hollow electric has the added power of 6 more strings! Premium features include an all-mahogany body, solid spruce center block, ebony fingerboard, and Guild’s hallmark mahogany neck with maple center seam. Instead of a harp tailpiece as seen on the first Guild electric 12-string (the Starfire XII made from ’66-’74), this modern version has a Tune-O-Matic bridge with a stopbar tailpiece for increased sustain and stability, imperative for keeping those extra strings in tune. The Starfire IV ST 12-String includes dual LB-1 “Little Bucker” pickups, replicas of Guild’s original smaller size humbucking pickups. It is available in Shoreline Mist & Cherry Red, and includes hardshell case.
