Information: 

The Starfield brand was created by Hoshino Industries, the parent company of Ibanez guitars. The brand was first used for Gibson Les Paul copies in the 1970s to early 1980s.

Then in the late 1980s the brand was used for some higher end guitars. Both Ibanez and Starfield guitars were made in the same factories in Japan, some models were finished in the Ibanez custom facility in California. There were two basic models: the twin cutaway Altair and the single cutaway Cabriolet series.

The brand was not a commercial success and was withdrawn in 1994.
