Product Description

The Fender Modern Player Starcaster Bass Guitar brings back one of the rarest instruments Fender has ever produced! This incredible semi-hollow bass features a distinct offset body that was on only a few prototypes in the mid ‘70s. Fender starts off by crafting the Starcaster bass with a thin semi-hollow body constructed with a bound maple top and back and bound f-holes for a unique looks and clear, throaty semi-hollow bass tones.

The Starcaster bass features a short-scale length (30-inches) and a C-shaped maple neck for a superb feel for players of all sizes. The distinctively curvaceous Starcaster headstock, 9.5 inch-radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and black-dot inlays give this bass incredible looks and feel. Dual Fender Wide Range humbuckers with three-way toggle switching, four skirted amp-style control knobs and a four-saddle Fender Hi-Mass bridge put the finishing touches on this instant Fender classic.

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Perfectly set up out of the box; the Wide Range Humbuckers sound excellent; unique look is very cool; bound f-holes are a nice touch. Very satisfied with this bass.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Very good quality, no flaws I can detect. I use it for CCM, but it is a versatile bass. I'd use it for anything I had to play.
Features
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
Love the color, Antique Cherryburst. Headstock shape is unique to the Starcaster.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Heavier than it looks, but not overly. Neck feels great, if you're used to a solid body, how it feels strapped on may take a little getting used to. I would align the pickup selector to go up and down rather than side to side, but not a deal breaker.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The three different tones are distinct and each is very useful on a bass.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Perfect.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Very good value. Fender label makes it even moreso.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Perfect. I did nothing to it for set up.
