  • 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.

    Arched Semi-Hollow Body This Starcaster model features an offset arched sealed semi-hollow body with center block for minimal feedback.

    SQR Ceramic Humbucking Pickups These Squier SQR ceramic humbucking pickups produce high-output, modern tone perfect for crunchy rhythms and soaring solos—compliments of the onboard 9-volt active electronics.

    Matching Headstock Contour The headstock on this model features a matching painted edge contour for a cohesive aesthetic.

    Black Chrome Hardware Stealthy and subtle, black chrome hardware is durable and resilient.

    Adjustable Bridge With Stop Tailpiece The adjustable bridge and stopbar tailpiece create rock-solid tuning stability.

    Slim “C”-Shaped Neck Profile This instrument offers a slim “C”-shaped neck profile for a fast, slick feel.
