This 1965 Guild Starfire bass has a maple body and short-scale (30 1/2") mahogany neck. Note the Chesterfield inlay with three-black stripes; a typical 1960s feature. The finger rests are level with each other. Features such as the Chesterfield inlay and front and back body binding.
The pickup is a Hagstrom Bi-Sonic single coil and is situated at the bridge position.
The beautifully finished Sunburst body was completed with three-ply (white/black/white) body binding front and back.
The neck is unbound, though where the body meets the neck, the binding also extends to a heel cap. Tuning keys are open gear nickel 538 Klusons.

Other features include separate tone and volume controls. Strung with Thomastik-Enfeld JF324 Jazz Nickel Flat Wound Short Scale (43-106) Strings.
