Squier Contemporary Active Starcaster
The original gamechanger is back, but not as you may remember it! The Starcaster warped perceptions of how semi hollow guitars should be made back in the ‘70s, by opting for an offset body Fender stumbled upon an instant winner boasting massive tonal versatility, and offering more adventurous players something that really fired up their creative spark.
Now evolved for the modern player, the Contemporary Active Starcaster continues the tradition of providing a stylish platform for players seeking creative freedom, however with some contemporary appointments. Key modifications to the original formula include a sealed semi-hollow body for minimized feedback and powerful Squier SQR active ceramic humbucker pickups introducing high-output tone and crystalline resonance to the mix.
Additional features include a comfortable ‘C’ shape Maple neck topped with a 12” radius Maple fingerboard to allow for fast play, narrow-tall frets for enhanced pitch definition and an adjustomatic bridge with stop tailpiece that maintains solid tuning stability. As for style, with a matching coloured contour on the headstock, black chrome-plated hardware and a silky smooth satin finish on the neck, the Contemporary Active Starcaster looks more desirable than ever before!
