Starforce Guitars

Hey there, great website!

I am looking for some more info on starforce guitars. If anyone has any info, i would appreciate an email or postback!

“Instruments previously produced in Korea. Initially exported by Tropical Music of Miami, Florida prior to their purchase of the Dean company.

The Starforce company was started in 1988. These medium quality solid body guitars feature designs based on the original Stratocaster, as well as the superstrat. With the introduction of models such as the 8007 with its more original body design, and several bass guitar models, Starforce seeks to expand its market niche, but apparantly isn´t producing any guitars at this moment, (Source: Tony Bacon, The Ultimate Guitar Book ).”

“”Tropical Music of Miami is now Tropical Music Export Enterprises, Inc. ( and still located in Miami. Their manager who said to the best of his knowledge there were four models produced; the 8000, 8002, 8004 and 8007. All of which (that he could remember) had solid maple bodies and necks. The company only serves Central America, South America, the Caribbean, & the B.W.I. so these guitars were never directly sold in the U.S.. Tropical music has not had a contract with Starforce for quite a few years and they dont have any records from that far back.”” (Found on a forum someplace)

Message preview

My First guitar was a Framus Grand star electric archtop, at the age of 15 ! but the beat bug bit me , so i wanted a solid , so i was bought a white dallas tuxedo , that was the guitar i used in the early published pictures when i ist played with Rod Stewart, in his very first rock band! after that i bought a brand new Burns vibra artist, and the band was renamed to the Moontrekkers, previously being Rod Stewart & the Raiders, i recorded ” Night of the Vampire, in 1961″ with the Burns, nearly changing it for a Burns bison 4 pick up job , but changed my mind at the last minute!, after that i had a Guild Starfire, in black , the only one that i have seen , i wonder where it is now? ? Next i had a guild manhattan , followed by a Gibson 335 in Cherry red ! sold that too , madness ! used the Guild starfire in the Five Dimensions that i formed with bassist Louis Cennamo, that also included Rod …! In recent years , ive collected guitars , got about 25, five Hofner Committees, some old Gibsons,etc Just bought an old clavioline to use with the Moontrekkers in our last gig ! should be fun ! Shades of Joe Meek ! Got two Burns vibra artists ,and a burns Sonic ! The possibly last Moontrekkers gig will be on the 4th July 2007, at Maldon , Essex, at the Bewick club, at the Swan hotel High street , Maldon , starts about 7.30.
