The standard finish for either of these guitars was sunburst, but also cherry for the V (although the text here suggests otherwise) and blonde for the VI. The June 1969 US prices for these guitars with standard finish was $520 for the Starfire V, and $700/$715 (sunburst/blonde) for the Starfire VI. Stereo circuitry was an additional $40. The Ebony grain finish, pictured, was a custom color - optionally Emerald Green, Black, White, Blonde, Brown and Amber - these were charged at an additional $20.
