Thread: Guild HB-2's ?

  1. #1

    Guild HB-2's ?

    GAD mentioned in a message that Guild now had HB-2's available which matches a standard sized humbucker route. I was wondering if anyone has any additional information (ohmage or video) on these? I contacted Guild but all I received was a non-specific yes they would be available for resale from Cordoba. Guild shows the Aristocrat with the HB2's https://guildguitars.com/g/aristocra...s-black-burst/

    Justin with Cordoba Group responded to my second inquiry regarding these HB2 pickups. Here is his response. I may just take my Corona SF III back off sale.

    Hi Mark,

    Neck - 7.00K Resistance - Alnico 2 Magnet
    Bridge - 7.10K - Alnico 2 Magnet

    These will also have a coil split feature. Hope that helps!

    Yup that is what I thought I said. But sorry if I was not clear. Just reread my post - not clear. But now it should be clear.

    But remember this is Guild. What, exactly, is a Starfire I or a Starfire II? Isn't the first name someone named a guitar related product without caring that the name was also used for a bass product.

    But weren't the Starfire basses properly called "Starfire Bass", as in this 65-66 brochure?
    https://www.gad.net/Blog/2010/08/18/...log-1956-1966/
    (With the "-I" and "-II" designations being applied when the 2-pickup model came in, as shown here:
    https://www.gad.net/Blog/wp-content/...68-Catalog.pdf)

    Given that the basses were, uh, based on the Starfire guitar, it only makes good sense to me.

    may as well build a banjo, and call it a mandolin.

    btw Marc WW ur Fender HB-1s in the Corona SF III should sound pretty sweet in that guitar. may need to adjust the pole pieces or try different strings, but i would not give up on them so fast. they sound great in arch tops
