About This Listing

I have for sale a Guild Starfire IV SF-4 semi-hollow guitar with an aged nitrocellulose black finish. This is an American made guitar that was built in Westerly, Rhode Island back in 1997. The guitar does exhibit some wear and tear as seen in the pictures, but it's in overall good condition for its age. The neck is straight, the frets are in good shape, and there are no breaks, cracks, or splits found on this guitar whatsoever.

This guitar is mostly original, featuring Guild Seymour Duncan SD-1 humbuckers, Grover tuners, Guild top hat knobs, chrome hardware, a mahogany body and neck, maple center block, and rosewood fretboard. The only nonoriginal modification to this guitar is the addition of a Bigsby B12 vibrato tailpiece and black plugs as pictured. I do have the original Gotoh stopbar tailpiece and screw plugs if you want to take it back to its original setup. This guitar is setup with new D'Addario .010 gauge nickel wound strings. The Bigsby installation and setup was done by Atomic Guitar Works in Peoria, Arizona. This Starfire sounds and plays phenomenal overall!

I do not have the original pickguard for this guitar, but I will include a new Guild Starfire hardshell case with the sale. The guitar stand is not included.

If you want to hear the sound of this very guitar pictured here, listen to it on my Instagram account, @christiannicholas59. I am using this same Guild in my most recent electric guitar videos and it should give you a good understanding of its overall sound/tone!

This Starfire will be shipped out through UPS. Feel free to message me should you have any questions regarding the guitar and I will answer you in a timely manner. Thank you!
