Blink-182 and Angels & Airwaves front man Tom DeLonge is an unconventional player, a point exemplified when he defied contemporary wisdom (and his past) by strutting onstage with Fender’s semi-hollowbody Starcaster. Players can now tread a similar path with the Tom DeLonge Starcaster semi-hollowbody electric. A thin, lightweight laminate maple construction makes this the ideal semi-hollowbody for contemporary rock and a welcoming choice for solidbody players who are eager to explore new sonic ground. A roasted maple neck provides quintessential Fender playability and comfort, while a medium-output ceramic humbucker from Seymour Duncan USA makes for seamless transitions between cleans and crunch tones. Fire up those tractor beams and get ready to reel in Fender’s latest signature invader: the Tom DeLonge Starcaster semi-hollowbody electric guitar.

Fender Tom DeLonge Starcaster at a Glance:

  • Seymour Duncan® SH-5 Duncan Custom™ medium output humbucking pickup
  • Master volume control with treble bleed circuit
  • Roasted maple modern “C” neck
  • Fender locking tuning machines
  • 12” radius slab rosewood fingerboard with medium jumbo frets
  • Custom Tom DeLonge neck plate and signature headstock decal

Lightweight laminate maple provides vibrant tone

The Tom DeLonge Starcaster semi-hollowbody electric guitar is made up almost entirely of laminate maple. This time-tested tonewood gives semi-hollowbody guitars like the Tom DeLonge Starcaster smooth tone, balanced sustain, and a mellow attack that’s well-suited to power chords and prolonged open-chord strums. These characteristics help the Tom DeLonge Starcaster quickly slot into dense mixes with other instruments, which is why Tom favors Starcasters when channeling Angels & Airwaves' uplifting bombast as well as Blink-182’s mellower numbers.

    High-performance hardware and comfortable support

    With its bolt-on neck and Modern “C” profile, the Tom DeLonge Starcaster rivals the playability and comfort of any solidbody electric guitar you’ve ever owned! The neck’s roasted maple material lightens the wood and virtually eliminates neck dive. Moreover, roasted maple is incredibly stable and less susceptible to warps or shifts caused by humidity, heat, and other climate factors. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard and paired with premium hardware that supports each string. Locking tuners and adjustable saddles make short work of string changes while allowing for spot-on intonation that’s sure to wow audiences.

    No-fuss electronics by Seymour Duncan Tone tweakers, beware!

    This guitar's single-pickup configuration challenges you to do more with less, just like Tom DeLonge has done for decades! The onboard Duncan Custom SH-5 humbucker is carefully voiced for sparkling cleans and robust crunch tones. The SH-5 takes inspiration from vintage PAF architecture and then supercharges that foundation with a hot ceramic magnet that quickly achieves overdrive. The lows are tight, the midrange heightened for crunchy punch, and the highs kept airy with an elevated tone that rises above thick distortion. Each SH-5 humbucker is handbuilt in Santa Barbara, California, and features vacuum wax-potted internals to prevent feedback and hum. A single speed knob provides fuss-free range and usable tones in a jiffy. And while this control scheme is simplified, Fender sweetens its performance with a treble bleed circuit that eliminates high-frequency loss at lower levels. Music Experience guitarists found the treble bleed extends the dynamic range and usable sweep of this lone pickup configuration without complicating surface controls whatsoever.

    What Fender Says...

    Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge has teamed up with Fender® once again to design a truly otherworldly phenomenon - the Tom DeLonge Starcaster®. Designed with an offset semi-hollow body, the Tom DeLonge Starcaster boasts a Seymour Duncan® SH-5 Duncan Custom™ humbucker for turbo-charged tone that’s perfect for chunky power chords and crunchy riffs. But it's not all about power — the streamlined control setup consisting of a single master volume combined with a treble bleed circuit preserves the guitar’s natural high-end, ensuring sparkly cleans and chime-y edge-of-breakup tones. The comfy modern "C" neck features medium jumbo frets on a 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard for a modern feel with superior playability. Other highlights include Fender locking tuners for rock-solid tuning stability and fully adjustable bridge with stop tailpiece for classic looks, superior setup adjustment and enhanced tuning stability. DeLonge’s original signature artwork is featured on the back of the headstock and custom crafted neck plate. Whether you're a Blink-182 fan looking to bottle the band's signature sound, or simply seeking a unique instrument that packs a knockout punch, the Tom DeLonge Starcaster is a must-have addition to any collection.

    USA Duncan® Custom Humbucker

    Hand-built in the Seymour Duncan California factory, the SH-5 Duncan Custom has tight lows, a bump in the upper midrange for added character and crunch, and an airy high end that cuts through heavy distortion but is also great for achieving crystal-clear clean tones.

    Master Volume with Treble Bleed Circuit

    For maximum tone and minimal fuss, Tom’s Starcaster® comes equipped with a lone master volume control. With the volume backed off, the treble bleed circuit preserves the natural high-end. Simply roll your volume down for sparkly cleans and chime-y edge-of-breakup tones.

    Roasted Maple Modern “C” Neck

    Crafted with roasted maple for optimal stability and resonance, this neck features a modern “C” shape - a supremely comfortable rounded profile that works well with almost any playing style.

    Center Block Semi-Hollowbody

    With this design, a wood block runs down the center of the body to enhance attack and articulation while the open-air cavities in the body’s “wings” increase resonance and tonal depth.

    Custom Tom Delonge Neck Plate

    The neck plate is engraved with DeLonge’s original artwork.

    Locking Tuning Machines

    With staggered posts for optimal break angle on each string, these locking tuning machines provide supreme tuning stability and smooth action while making string changes a breeze.
