Just like the original Starcaster did in the ‘70s, the Squier Contemporary Active Starcaster breaks the mold with a fantastic design, high output tone and superb playability! The offset body of this guitar is still semi-hollow but Squier has sealed it, minimizing feedback during those loud gigs and practice sessions. Powered by dual Squier SQR active ceramic humbucking pickups, this axe pumps out decidedly high-output tone. Player-friendly features include a slim, comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile with a fast-playing 12”-radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets, as well as a stop tailpiece for solid tuning stability. This Squier model also features a matching painted headstock contour, black chrome-plated hardware and a smooth satin neck finish for a natural feel.
