Dearmond By Guild Starfire Special
This is a Dearmond Starfire Special manufactured in Korea, serial number KC9011690. The guitar is in good overall condition but does show some light playwear. There are some finish swirls, light scratches and some minor dings. The frets are also in good condition and show only minor flattening in the first position. There is also no pickguard. This one's a good player with a smooth, medium to low action and a nice medium thickness 'C' shape neck. She's also been upgraded to Sperzel locking tuners to help keep her in tune while wailin' away on the Bigsby! Total weight with the Bigsby comes in at 9 lbs. 4 ozs. This guitar is like the ultimate Fender / Gibson hybrid! It twangs and cuts like a Fender but is fat and warm like a Gibson. The Dearmond 2k alnico pickups twang and bite like a Tele but without any of the high end shrillness. The neck pickup if warm and creamy, like a massive Strat pickup. Good stuff! Here are more specs from Dearmond;
This single cutaway semi-hollow body has a solid center block to resist feedback and is fitted with two of our powerful USA-made 2K Alnico single-coil pickups. Factory equipped for shimmering vibrato effects, the DeArmond Vibro tailpiece and (in early 2001) our Roll-o-Matic bridge take your eyes and ears back a half century but have the tuning stability you expect in a modern guitar.

Unfortunately I have to to give the seller less than a 5. Would have loved to give them a 5 but they failed to mention that the battery cover was missing. I think it was a simple oversight and not sure it should detract too much from the way they do business. Shipping was fast! Oh well, ..I guess I'll 'find some foam and some tape'.
