29% Off... the manufacturer's suggested retail price...

The Squier Affinity Starcaster is descended from the infamous Starcaster that debuted in 1976. Made from laminated maple, the body is contoured for comfort and creates a mellow attack. The Starcaster has a unique two-tiered headstock design that is only found on the Starcaster models, oozes cool, and guarantees that you'll stand out on stage. This axe doesn't just look good, its awesome tone comes from a pair of Squier Standard humbucking pickups that you can control with the master volume and master tone knobs. This affordable semi-hollow guitar will wow you with its fat sound and impressive sustain. Featuring multiple classic finishes, the Squier Affinity Starcaster is the ultimate choice between awesome semi-hollow tones and vintage good looks.

Fender Squier Affinity Series Starcaster at a Glance:

  • 100% designed by Fender
  • Offset semi-hollow body
  • Dual Squier humbucking pickups
  • Satin neck finish

Classic Contoured Construction

The Squier Affinity Starcaster has much the same construction as the vintage Starcaster. It has an all-maple laminate body that's paired with a maple neck and fingerboard. This construction creates a bright attack with a long sustain. The maple neck's c-shape carve and 9.5" fretboard radius are perfectly suited to all playing styles, and here at Music Experience, we love the Starcaster's classy f-holes.

Simple controls and great tonal options

When you plug your Starcaster in for the first time, you'll appreciate the wide variety of tonal options. The Squier Affinity Starcaster carries two Squier Standard humbucking pickups. You'll like the clean highs and fat mids that shine through no matter what volume setting you're using. This guitar has a 3-way switch, master volume and master tone that make it super easy to dial in your perfect sound.
