Manufacturer's Description

Guild Starfire Bass II, Semi-Hollow 4-String Electric Bass, Indian Rosewood Fretboard, Hard Case - Black

Guild is proud to introduce the Starfire Bass II, a dual-pickup semi-hollow bass guitar that brings additional sonic options to one of Guild’s 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’s natural beauty. The Starfire Bass II brings Guild’s vintage vibe to the modern bass player.
