**SOLD****SOLD****SOLD****SOLD** .. . .. Vintage1968 Guild Starfire 2 bass. Cherry burst finish. This bass is quite similar to the Gibson EB2D. It comes with 2 Swedish-made Hagstrom pickups, sweet, rich sound, with quite a bit more highs and a lot more output than the Gibsonís pickup. Two of the most innovative rock bassists of the psychedelic era, the Grateful Deadís Phil Lesh and Jack Casady of the Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, were early users of the Starfire basses. The finish shows some buckle rash and a few dings to the body, mainly around the edges. The same can be said for the neck and headstock which also display wear. Everything is structurally sound. . The binding is all intact. The tip of the pickup selector is missing. The electronics and hardware work as they should. The bass has been fully set up by my technician and comes with a new hardcase.
