Fender Starcaster Bass in Black

This product is not currently available.

Product Description

Uniquely styled with bold '70s curves, the Fender Starcaster shape returns in Bass form! This classic semi-hollow design briefly graced Fender's prestigious history, and now that Fender have bought it back into production as a bass guitar- it is easy to see why.

The Starcaster is a semi-hollow bass which delivers great, characterful boxy tones within an electric bass. It's a great compliment between an acoustic bass sound with benefits of electronics, and Fender's heritage for great electric basses now extends to semi-hollow models too!

The Starcaster remains positively progressive with a comfortable C-shaped maple neck on a maple board; the Starcaster is extremely comfortable to play. Vintage touches like skirted knobs mix with modern features to form what we here at Andertons hope will become a new modern classic for Fender - the Fender Starcaster Bass!

Here's what Fender say about the Starcaster Bass

Fender introduces a new model of what is surely one of its rarest-ever instruments, the semi-hollow Starcaster Bass. Only a handful of prototype models appeared during the mid 1970s, unusually distinctive as the only offset semi-hollow bass guitar in Fender history (to say nothing of its two enormous humbucking pickups). After decades of virtually fabled status, the Starcaster Bass now reappears in electrifying Modern Player form with superior sound, build and beauty ideal for bassists with a flair for appealingly unconventional Fender style.

The Fender Starcaster Bass guitar's thin semi-hollow offset body has a bound maple top and back, with stylish bound f-holes. A short-scale bass (30”), it has a “C”-shaped maple neck topped by the distinctively curvaceous Starcaster headstock, and a 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and black-dot inlays. Other premium features include dual Fender Wide Range humbucking bass pickups with three-way toggle switching, four skirted “amp”-style control knobs (volume and tone for each pickup) and a four-saddle Fender Hi-Mass bridge. Available in gorgeous Natural, Black and Aged Cherry Burst gloss finishes.
