With its roots in the original Starfire IV series, The Guild Newark Starfire IV ST-12 delivers a classic choral sound made famous by countless bands in the 60‘s like the Beatles and Byrds. This updated classic has a semi-hollow mahogany body, solid spruce center block, an arched mahogany top and laminated mahogany sides. The classic double cutaway shape features iconic f-shaped sound holes for increased resonance.
The neck is Guild’s hallmark mahogany neck with maple center seam and an incredibly easy to play ivory bound ebony fretboard with dot pearl inlays. This neck is incredibly fast for a 12-string and is great for a lot more than just strumming chords. The high quality hardware include dual LB-1 humbucker pickups with nickel plated Tune-o-Matic bridge and Guild die-cast closed-gear tuning machines, ensuring that your guitar stays in tune no matter how aggressively you play.
