(Most likely) 1061.6, and therefore no Static Fire.  Awaiting a reliable source to confirm my deduction.
Possible first stages for Starlink 4-7:
1052.3 or 1061.6.
No other stages will be/are known to be available yet.

These are also the possible first stages for CSG-2.

Whichever of the two that doesn't launch CSG-2, launches Starlink 4-7.

My >guess< regarding Static Fire or not would be:
No Static Fire.

(We on the outside do not know what the current disposition of B1069 is.  We have not yet seen 1053.3 with conversion work completed to single stick.)

I think B1063 is still in Vandenberg following DART. Just a guess.

CSG-2 launch attempt on January 28 was scrubbed.  Its next attempt is in 24 hours on January 29, 23:11 UTC.

This Starlink launch will be 20 hours and 28 minutes later.

Edit Jan 29:
SFN, Weather delays set up SpaceX for two weekend launches from Cape Canaveral, January 28
Quote
...the shortest span between two orbital departures from Florida’s Space Coast since 1967.

Moot point now, due to further developments, but I'm sure the situation will happen again.
