1 Mr_Christopher 2 months ago I read several threads on the Starfire III here and also ones linked in those threads. Some of those threads are 3-4 years old so I want to revisit the subject but the leading Guild forum has disabled registration so I can’t ask there. So here I am, my dudes, asking you. My understanding is either you like the modern pickups or no. The bridge is under powered compared to the neck seems to be the primary concern. Guild sells replacement pickups but they seem to be the same, so why bother? Does anyone make drop in replacement pickups? Lots of complaints about wonky toggle switches and knobs/pots. Guild sells a complete wiring harness, is it an upgrade or just as wonky? I owned a 60s Starfire III when I was too young to appreciate it (and traded it for something stupid no doubt) and everyone seems to agree the modern ones are a great value and quality construction and finish. So I’ve got my eye on getting a modern one but I’m trying to figure out what might need replacing and what replacements are available.I’m probably going to buy used for reasons of economy so we’re talking about a Korean made one and not the 90s USA one unless I stumble onto a total deal. So anyhow, school me please.
