Fabulous Guitar With a Unique Visual Appearance
What is your opinion of this product?
Been playing over 50 years and have had a lot of guitars! The Starcaster ads caught my attention, and I fell in love with its looks. I owned a Fender Coronado in the 1970's, and along with other Fenders felt it was safe to buy without first playing one. Ordered it from AMS - 2 day delivery and great packaging. The guitar's finish is perfect (I got the natural finish). Absolutely no flaws anywhere. The neck is a dream to play - very fast, comfortable, and easy access all the way up to the 22nd fret. The edges of the frets are smooth. The controls are well positioned for easy access to volume, tone and pickup changes. You can get a lot of nice tones through the pickups - I am still exploring all the possibilities. Finally, it is comfortable play for extended periods of time. I bought a Gator GC-335 ABS case and the Starcaster fits perfectly. Why 4 stars and not 5? The setup was not correct - action too high and excessive bow in the neck. Was able to fix these issues.
