    Hahaha I'm so very sorry. I'd say around $2000.

    i wasnt sure what to think on that either craigslist, i saw that post tonight, but i have never seen or played on a guild
     
  11. If you're going to try to make some quick cash than I wouldn't do it... but if you're looking for a unique instrument than I'd go for it.

    i think TBer Lokire has a sanded down Guild Starfire. You might wanna ask him how much he paid.
     
  13. Grab it NOW. I got a '67 in equivalent condition for $300 in '95 or so, and still kick myself for selling it 10 years ago. If you buy it and don't like it, I'll take it off your hands.

    I kick myself for not picking one up for $700 a few years ago. I've seen them go for a lot more, recently.

    That's a dream project there...even if it doesn't have the original hagstrom pickups...if it does you certainly wouldn't lose money on it, there's easily half a dozen or so folks here that would love to get into a project like that. A Starfire, ready to be re-finished, you're hurtin' me right now...
     
  16. Growing up my Dad had an old Guild Starfire bass in a closet. I never wanted anything to do with it after I started playing because it just wasn't "cool". It had flatwound strings and, from what I remember, looked perfect. A few years ago I started wondering about that bass and asked him about it. I'm in my late 30's and now have an appreciation for more things. He had literally JUST sold it within two weeks of me asking. My Mom had a yard sale so he put it out. A neighborhood kid paid him $30 for it. He had no idea who the kid was or where he lived so I couldn't get it back. I still get sick when I think about it.:bawl:
