The Starfire is one of the most revered and sought after Guild electric guitar models of all time. First introduced in the 1960’s it quickly found favor with a wide range of players due to its unique sound, excellent playability, and quality construction. This classic Guild model now returns in a limited special run version – the Guild Starfire VI. The Seymour Duncan® Seth Lover pickups offer that highly sought after early humbucker tone: smooth, warm, and harmonically rich with excellent dynamic range.

GSR stands for Guild Special Run. Only a limited production run of 18 guitars will be made. Guild will be sending 13 overseas to international dealers, and 5 will be available in the US.
