 Guild Starfire DearmondThe Guild Guitar Company started in 1952 as a small repair shop in Manhattan. But as the company craftsman began creating their own line of electric guitars the business quickly developed into what became one of the premier names in all the industry. By the time the Starfire line hit the market in the 1960s, Guild already had established a rather sizable following among dozens of the era's biggest name performers. The Starfire was known for its rich, jazzy tones, yet the sound was also suitable for both rock 'n roll and folk music if properly amped. Unfortunately, all accept the Starfire IV were eventually discontinued.

Beginning in the 1970s Guild underwent a series of ownership changes which drastically reduced quality. But Fender rescued the company by purchasing it in the 1990s. As part of their plans they decided to resurrect some of the older vintage Guilds under new names - the Starfire De Armond being just one example. The De Armond version was made in Korea using the original Guild plans under the supervision of former Guild builders. Some argue this produced a guitar even better than the original Guild models.

The Starfire De Armond is a semi-hollow electric with a solid maple block down the center, to which both the lower bridge and tailpiece are mounted. The signature part of this guitar are the duel De Armond Goldtone pickups, which many a modern-day guitar player even prefer over the old Guild humbuckers and original single-coil P-90s. The guitar features dual volume and tone controls and a pickup selector switch which located on the lower cut out. While locating the selector switch in this area takes some getting used to, it's actually quite natural in terms of switching on the fly. The high lacquer finish, classic guild styled pick guard, and dual f-holes speak of the classic Guild all the way.
