    Product Description

    The Starcaster is arguably one of Fender’s boldest designs. Its striking offset semi-hollow design stuck out like a sore thumb among the classic Fender staples.

    Now, Squier have given the semi-hollow Starcaster the Contemporary Series treatment: active ceramic pickups, a satin C-shaped neck and a gnarly matte finish. A rock ‘n’ roll instrument to the core with an accessible price point – what’s not to love?

    Key features

    • Sealed semi-hollow body for resonant tones
    • All-Maple construction for crystal-clear treble response
    • Active Squier SQR ceramic pickups offer a cutting-edge contemporary sound
    • Speedy 12” radius with C-shape neck
    • Black chrome hardware for a slick aesthetic
    • Matte finish with matching headstock strip

    Here’s what Fender say:

    The Starcaster broke the mold of semi-hollow guitar design with its offset body shape when it was introduced in the ‘70s, offering versatile sounds and out-of-this-world styling for the most adventurous players.

    The Contemporary Active Starcaster is an evolution of the original Fender model, engineered with a sealed semi-hollow body for minimized feedback and powered by dual Squier SQR active ceramic humbucking pickups for high-output tone. Player-friendly features include a slim, comfortable “C” shaped neck profile with a fast-playing 12” radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets, as well as a stop tailpiece for solid tuning stability.

    This Squier model also features a matching painted headstock contour, black chrome-plated hardware and a smooth satin neck finish for a natural feel.
