Guild Guitars Starfire Bass II overview

  • 1Description

A handsomely-shaped instrument styled in a black finish, the Guild Newark Street Collection Starfire Bass II features a semi-hollow, double-cutaway body. It's a faithful reissue of a model made famous by bass players such as Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane) and Phil Lesh (The Grateful Dead, Phil and Friends).

Its body sports arched, laminated mahogany in the top and back. Mahogany is also used throughout the sides and neck. The neck sports a vintage soft "U" shape and a 30.75" scale, as well as 21 narrow-jumbo frets on an Indian rosewood fingerboard.

For electronics, the Starfire II provides two Guild BS-1 BiSonic bass pickups, which boast a contemporary tone and a classic look. You'll find two knobs for volume and two knobs for tone, an overall master-volume knob, and a three-way pickup switch that lets you choose among pickup configurations. Strings are affixed to the body by a Guild adjustable bass bridge with rosewood saddles. Grover Vintage 142-Series tuning machines are found in the headstock. A deluxe hardshell case is included.
