    Product Description

    The Squier Contemporary series consists of a range of ultra-modern guitars and basses. This stellar range features classic Fender designs refined with state-of-the-art appointments. Bringing modern features and bold aesthetics to iconic Fender platforms, the Contemporary series is sure to satisfy today’s most discerning and daring players.

    The Squier Contemporary Active Starcaster is a bold, modern take on the classic offset semi-hollow design. A laminated Maple body provides an organic, resonant platform on which to build your tone and the sculpted heel design allows for improved access to the upper frets. The roasted Maple neck delivers a bright tone with an enhanced presence, while the 12" radius roasted Maple fingerboard is sleek and smooth under the fingers. At the heart of the Active Starcaster is a pair of ferocious Squier SQR™ active ceramic humbuckers that produce a massive, high-output signal. High-gain users in particular will love the definition and clarity of these pickups!

    A 6-saddle adjustable bridge and stop tailpiece ensures accurate intonation whilst maximising the transference of string vibrations. At the other end, a set of sealed-gear tunings with split shafts deliver a smooth tuning action and easy restringing. Stealthy black hardware and a sleek painted headstock with chrome logos give the Active Jazzmaster a premium look that is sure to turn heads!
