Fender Starcaster

The Starcaster guitar is back. Fender reintroduces the Starcaster (one of the most fabled and oft-requested instruments in Fender history) as the newest addition to the popular Modern Player series.

Virtually fabled since its original mid-to-late ’70s tenure, the seldom-seen Starcaster occupies a special place in Fender history as their one and only offset-waist semi-hollow electric guitar. 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.
