Guild Starfire Bass II 4 String Semi Hollowbody Electric Bass Guitar w/ Case
The Guild Starfire Bass II is a dual-pickup semi-hollow bass guitar that brings additional sonic options to one of Guild' most iconic models. The Starfire Bass II originally debuted in 1967, shortly after the single-pickup version, and quickly garnered a following that included Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane) and Phil Lesh (Grateful Dead).
The addition of the BiSonic BS-1 neck pickup on the Starfire Bass II gives bassists a warmer, smooth sound for added tonal flexibility. This double cutaway bass guitar features an arched laminate mahogany top and back, and mahogany sides, dual Guild BS-1 pickups, individual volume, tone, and master volume knobs, and a pickup selector switch. A clear, high gloss finish highlights this bass guitar' natural beauty. Includes hardshell case.
