1961 Guild Starfire

A 1961 Guild Starfire, lovingly restored by yours truly.

So far, I’ve restored and repaired numerous instruments, and many with a certain prestige to them. For instance, this 1961 Guild Starfire came in looking dingy, with the headstock veneer separated at the edges. After some serious time spent lovingly cleaning and polishing the body with some special chemical agents, she looks quite the business, and sold for a handsome sum indeed. I also re-glued the headstock veneer with the aid of a well-placed heat gun, and it fell back into place with ease.
