An "is_string" BIF?

This really exposes an ugly wart on the language, in that
one cannot use any expression in a guard, making it impossible
to use abstractions there, e.g.
glorbgraph(Graph) when mygraph:curiousproperty(Graph) -> ...

Subject: An "is_string" BIF?
I need an "is_string" function, something that behaves as follows:
is_string ("ABC") -> true
is_string ([65,66,67]) -> true
is_string (['1','2',three]) -> false
I know that I could do that by defining a suitable function, but I would
like to use it in a guard. Is there a sort of BIF?
