The Guild Newark St. Collection marks the return of classic Guild electric guitars and basses from the 1950s and ’60s—once again putting the distinctive Guild styling and voice that helped shape popular music into the hands of today’s musicians. The Newark St. Collection celebrates some of Guild’s most iconic models, including the hard-rocking solid-body S-100 Polara, the semi-hollow and hollow Starfire guitars and basses, and elegant archtop jazz guitars like the A-150 Savoy and X-175 Manhattan. Features include Guild’s famed Vibrato Tailpiece, stoptail pieces, pinned bridges, authentically voiced vintage-style pickups, and classic hardware designs. With a wide selection of models, Guild has always been the first choice for musicians in need of an instrument that’s made to be played.
Grab the Guild Starfire II hollowbody electric for a rock 'n' roll guitar with rich, organic tone. You'll feel unhindered by the Starfire II's thinline body style that's comfortable to wear and play over long gigs.
Introducing the Starfire II ST, a hollowbody guitar with a graceful single Florentine cutaway and extra thin mahogany body. The Starfire II ST comes equipped with dual LB-1 Little Bucker pickups, replicas of Guild’s original smaller size humbucking pickups. These pickups, which have a footprint that falls in between a full size humbucker and mini-bucker, define the Starfire II’s uniquely-Guild sound. Other premium features include a mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, elegant ivory white body binding, and a beautiful high gloss natural finish. This model features a Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for increased sustain and stability. The Starfire II is a welcome addition to the Starfire family, offering Guild’s classic vibe and vintage tone.
