Ok, wtf is a starcaster? Looks like a strat... Seems like it'd be a Squire...
Linksies

Crazy headstock option. I dig the silver burst & black headstock, tho.

fender tries to put itself at every level of the market so they don't get pushed out by someone selling something cheaper than them. They have their professional quality (fender), they have their student quality (squire) and they have their super dirt cheap ebay shite (starcaster). this way they can compete at every level in the market.

The starcaster is also a real guitar from the CBS era. JOhnny greenwood has one.



It also has the best headstock ever. and WRHPS! ZOMG! MOJO TONEZ

My friend just started playing guitar and got a silver burst one and it's TERRIBLE. The tuners are shite and the p/ups don’t sound very good.

the good thing about fenders is that theyre mostly all modular.
if one thing is shit, you can replace it with a less shit part.
i love it, which is why i keep messing with my strats.

True but it is silly when everything is pretty bad. You might as well buy a squire or get a good deal on something slightly better on ebay. The sad thing is that in all the starcasters I've seen the tremolo arm has broken off inside the block rendering the tremolo useless (even if the strat trem isn't very interesting to begin with).

hehehe, yea, all I like is the paint. I would expect anything cheap to be for beginners or people w/o amps.

i got to play a couple starcasters at the chicago music exchange and i liked them better than the coronados i played.
they seemed.... better in some way.
plus the cock stock is way cool,
its the only fender headstock that makes me puke and smile at the same time.

The pickups are so much better than Coros, and the styling is soooo amazing.

The Mooney Suzuki always plays those too. I think they are very cool. Even with the penis headstock.
