Description

Details

Straight from the late 70s the awesome Fender Starcaster semi-hollow electric guitar is back! This rare gem was Fender's only trip into the realm of offset-waist semi-hollow electric guitars, and it's made available today for a whole new generation of players to enjoy. The best of the traditional remains alongside modern build quality, whilst a little finesse has been added on the aesthetic side to give this gorgeous model a little extra 'star factor'.

Body

The beautiful semi-hollow offset body is crafted from laminated maple, offering a highly resonant chamber that creates a lush timbre that is filled with complex tones. The alder centre-block prevents the tones from becoming too overwhelming, ensuring the utmost articulation - even at high volume levels. Sweetly shaped F-holes not only enhance the visual character of the Starcaster, but also serve to enable the acoustic sound to be projected effortlessly. The body is bound along the top and back to offset the stunning aged cherry burst finish, and reinforces the laminated maple for added strength. A cool three-ply black pickguard protects the lower bout of the body top below the pickups.

Neck

Fitted to the body is a maple neck, which has been shaped to a comfortable "C"-shape profile. Paired with the neck is a 22-fret maple fingerboard, shaped to a 9.5" radius to aid in the execution of smooth string bends, and decorated with black dot positional inlays for quick navigation. To top of the magnificent looks of this remarkable guitar you get the distinctively curvaceous Starcaster headstock.

Electronics

Translating the complex timbre of the tonewoods and body shape is not easy feat, but the full-voiced dual Fender Wide Range humbucking pickups carry off the role with ease. Control comes in the form of a three-way pickup selector toggle switch, and four skirted “amp”-style control knobs that control volume and tone for each pickup. The range of tonal complexity offered by the Starcaster suits a wide range of musical styles, and with artists ranging from Jonny Greenwood, Foals, and Jamie Cook of Arctic Monkeys amongst its fans, it's clear to see the Starcaster is as versatile in its application as it is sophisticated in style.

Hardware

The body has been fitted with a pinned adjusto-matic bridge with anchored tailpiece to create a seamless connection between the strings and body, thus creating the perfect basis for optimum intonation, sustain and string tension. Fender standard cast/sealed tuning machines keep strings fixed securely, allowing you to play with total reassurance.

The Fender Starcaster semi-hollow electric guitar is a rarely released slice of guitar history; this is your chance to own a piece of it, so act fast to avoid disappointment.
