The Fender Starcaster Bass is back, and better than ever. With only a handful of prototypes made in the 1970s, the Starcaster achieved cult status. This Modern Player incarnation gives you a unique offset semi-hollow maple body with an alder center block for robust sustain. Stylishly bound F-holes lend a cool vintage vibe and enhance the instrument's rich resonance, while dual Wide Range humbuckers deliver a huge spectrum of amplified tone. You'll also appreciate the fast feel of the maple neck and fingerboard with its medium-jumbo frets. Play the legend: the Fender Starcaster Bass.
Fender's Starcaster Bass may look like the spittin' image of its 1970s ancestors, but this axe is a thoroughly modern instrument, with Fender's latest cutting-edge sonic and playability enhancements. Today's Modern Player Starcaster Bass sports an alder center block, for improved sustain and feedback resistance onstage. You'll also appreciate the smooth playability of this instrument's 30" scale.
Huge sound, wide tonal range, and high output - this is what you can expect from Fender's Wide Range humbucking pickups. From punchy cleans to agressive growl, you'll love the sounds you can coax out of the Wide Range humbucking pickups in your Starcaster Bass. A three-position toggle plus a volume and tone control for each pickup give you complete command over this heady tone brew.
Throughout its history, Fender has always made a point of welcoming new players to the fold by offering high-quality, affordable entry-level instruments such as the Duo-Sonic, Mustang and Musicmaster - all with great tone and awesome playability. The Modern Player series continues this great tradition, giving you modern features and fresh, unconventional takes on selected classic Fender instruments like the Fender Starcaster Bass.
