The Starcaster has long turned heads with its part semi-hollowbody, part offset construction. The Squier Classic Vibe Starcaster comes equipped with vintage appointments such as Fender-designed wide-range humbucking pickups, 3-way pickup selector switch, double-bound body, and classic Starcaster headstock. Originally intended to break into the semi-hollowbody market, the Starcaster has become a cult classic for its clear, fat sound. You'll be able to dial in your exact sound, thanks to volume and tone controls for each pickup. Made with a laminated maple body and alder center block, this guitar has sustain and resonance that you'll love. When you play the Squier Classic Vibe Starcaster, you can harness the experimental energy that defined the â€™70s guitars.
The Squier Classic Vibe Starcaster runs true to the form of the vintage Starcasters â€” all maple with an alder center block. From the contoured, laminated body to the neck and fingerboard, this guitar's body is all maple. The alder center block adds extra sustain and balance to the maple's bright attack, and the maple neck's c-shape carve and 9.5" fretboard radius are perfectly suited to all playing styles. Here at Sweetwater, we love the Starcaster's double-bound body and bound F-holes.
When you plug your Starcaster in for the first time, you'll appreciate the wide variety of tonal options. The Squier Classic Vibe Starcaster carries two Fender-designed wide range humbucking pickups, and you'll love the fat mids and tonal clarity that shines through no matter the volume. This guitar has a 3-way switch and a volume and tone control for each pickup. You'll be able to set your ideal sound and completely forget about it.
