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. Includes plush-lined hard-shell case.

Get your Guild Starfire Bass II Semi-Hollow Body Electric Bass Guitar today at the guaranteed lowest price from Sam Ash Direct with our 45-day return and 60-day price protection policy.

I had been waiting for this bass for decades and it has arrived. I have a 1967 one pickup starfire (that I love) and now have a brand new 2 pickup Starfire. Thanks to Guild and Sam Ash. The sound, fit and finish are all comparable. Wow, like it came out a time capsule after 40 years, untouched and arrived on my door step. BTW - It is not a bad looker as well. I plan on showing her off at my next gig.
