Oh my... Looks to be about 2001. A bit darker than the usual Guild blonds I've seen. Sexy as hell though. Every bit of guitar as the $2700 Gibson dot reissue 335 I recently played. This one was less than half that. Lot's less. :)

Here it is next to my X-170:

If you've never owned a Starfire, get yourself one. Damn fine guitars.

They are fine indeed my friend. I had one that looked similar, and only sold it because it was a little too narrow at the nut. But they vary quite a bit and I'm sure I'll eventually own another. Enjoy it. Sweet instrument.

Beautiful guitar!

There was a sunburst in the Emporium in Dec. that I could have had but before I committed to it I found out my job was in question due to the economy.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Man that thing looks STUNNING!!! Mahogany neck?? My old blond one had maple as does my new Starfire VI.:banana ;)
Is the neck wood year dependent?? Where did you pick that one up? These things are a STEAL. Boy do they sound and play nice! Yours looks brand new!

You have a Starfire VI? Love to see a picture of that. Only a few hundred ever made. Yours has a Bigsby I am assuming.

I've been begging him for pics in the "Lets see your Guilds" thread to no avail.

C'mon Tag - we need some SFVI porn!

Hell I'm in NJ. I'll even offer to come take pictures for you!

I have a thing for the Guild Starfire III. I have twin blondes - a Starfire III and a Starfire III90. Just fantastic guitars.

Congrats on your new guitar. Guilds are very underrated IMO. I had a Nightbird I gigged with for 8 years. It was shaped similar to a Les Paul with a semi-hollow mahogany body and solid quilt top. It had an ebony fingerboard, gold hardware, and a honey sunburst finish.

Still waiting to hear about the diffrent neck woods. I have never even seen a Mahogany one! I would love to try one sometime. :drool

Funny I hadn't even noticed. All the Starfires I've played have had the neck like mine. I'll see if I can learn more. The author of the Guild book hangs out on the Guild forum. I'll see if he knows.
