    Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead played one of those for a short time during the late 1960s if memory serves.

    You mean the ST303?
    I was thinking same thing but when looking for the earlier reference it was different ST model:

    Yeah, that's the one (in the PIC). I had the exact model nomenclature wrong, but was mainly just thinking "Starfire-type but with Florentine cutaways".

    Right, when I first saw a pic of it many years ago I thought it was a Starfire guitar, in fact thought it was actually a factory special with all the knobs because I'd read he actually had an SF special built for him around the time the Dead (or he and Jerry at least) actually visited Westerly, ca '69 I think (+/- a year?).
    Now realize it was probably his actual Starfire.
    Those guys really loved Guild!

    I was going to ask "what's the elephant in the room", but your PIC makes that pretty self-evident...

    In that Weir picture, that Guild may be the close relative of the bass I got from Phil. Mark Dronge told me that Guild built a custom instrument for each of the three.
    13 Guild basses
    3 Guild guitars
    6 Guild bass amps
    3 Guild guitar amps
    I like Guilds.

    I don't know. I think we've never seen it (if Mark was right).
