Overview

Fender's one and only offset-waist semi-hollow electric guitar.

The Starcaster guitar is back. Virtually fabled since its original mid-to-late '70s tenure, the seldom-seen Starcaster occupies a special place in our history as Fender's 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 that'll have you seeing stars.

The Fender Starcaster guitar's thin semi-hollow offset body has a bound maple top and back, with stylish bound f holes. Its "C"-shaped maple neck has a 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, black-dot inlays and the distinctively curvaceous Starcaster headstock. Other premium features include full-voiced dual Fender Wide Range humbucking pickups with three-way toggle switching, three-ply black pickguard, four skirted "amp"-style control knobs (volume and tone for each pickup) and an Adjusto-Matic bridge with anchored tailpiece.
