Guild DeArmond Starfire Custom
A 1999 in perfect (Near Mint) Condition.
The photos do not do this beauty justice!
It plays and looks as good as any Gibson 335 and has it's
own unique sound with the USA made DeArmond Pickups
This Starfire Custom is very special and VERY collectable in this condition!!
It IS actually a Custom!!
If you should find one anywhere, it will not have a master volume control
or a 3/Way Pickup Switch on upper bout! And probably no Bigsby!
These guitars were discontinued in early 2000 because they were so good they were cutting into Guild's sales because of their price and quality!!
After Fender purchased Guild in the mid '90s, reissues of some Guild electric guitars were manufactured in Korea under the DeArmond brand name, which Fender also owned the rights to. Import reissue models included the Starfire, X155, T400, M-75 Bluesbird, S-73, and Pilot Bass series. On the front of the headstock, these instruments display the DeArmond logo above a modified version of Guild's Chesterfield logo. As is being discovered, and may not be widely known, Korean guitars are on par with Japan in every way!
Hardshell Case included.
