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.
A real beauty and a fantastic player"

General What is your overall opinion of this product? This is the most beautiful Fender I have ever purchased. Plays with a real growl and you can get a lot of different sounds from her. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Very well made, binding around frets is great down to the heave bridgw and nice vintake look. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? Yes love the vintage cherry look and the 2 pickups with Fender on them to coll looking headstock. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Great slick neck feels great and easy to play, frets or well fitted and neck set up nice. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Very fat tone with good adjustment with 2 tone and 2 volume along with splitter toggle. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Just fantastic, can't say enough. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? The best bang for your buck. This Fender is worth way more than the listed price here. Great workmanship with great hardware. Playability How was the action out of the box? Nice low smooth action no buzz.
