Fender - 1975 Starcaster

SOLD. Call us for options.

This used Fender Starcaster is from one of its first years of production, 1975, and as rare as they are they're making something of a comeback - and this is your chance to own one of the originals. Here with a semi-hollow body with dual f-holes, it's made entirely from Maple for a great-sounding guitar with loads of sustain and a distinct crispness in its tone. When other semi-hollow guitars opted for set-necks, the Starcaster yields a three-bolt joint, giving it that twangy sharpness for which Fender is known. Implementing dual Seth Lover Wide Range humbuckers was Fender's way of breaking its image as a single-coil-only guitar-maker, and they sound superb, offering a noticeable warmth not often heard through a Fender.

The Starcaster has 22 frets, a 22 1/2" scale, hardtail bridge with adjustable saddles, Fender-Schaller sealed tuners on its unique, curved headstock, and a three-way toggle switch between humbuckers, a Master Volume, and individual Volume and Tone knobs for the pickups. All-in-all a stellar guitar, an original Fender Starcaster doesn't come around often, so check this one out while it's still available. In Very Good condition, it does have light finishing-cracks, and oxidation to the humbuckers, but it still plays and sounds amazing. Also includes its original case with orange lining.
