A True Fender Original Returns
Virtually fabled since the mid-to-late 1970s, the seldom-seen Starcaster occupies a special place in Fender history as its one-and-only offset-waist semi-hollow electric guitar. Prized decades later by a new generation of adventurous guitarists with a flair for appealingly unconventional Fender style, the Starcaster now returns in fabulous new Modern Player form with greater sound, build and beauty.
Features
  • Thin semi-hollow offset body with bound maple top and back, and bound f holes
  • Maple neck with “C” profile and distinctive Starcaster headstock
  • 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets
  • Dual Fender Wide Range humbucking pickups with three-way toggle switch
  • Four skirted amp control knobs (volume and tone for each pickup)
  • Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with anchored tailpiece

    A big part of this instrument’s resonant tonal character comes from its semi-hollow maple body, which improves on the original design with an alder center block for more sustain and less susceptibility to feedback.
