do u no about the quality of the instrument?
You get what you pay for. Starcasters are not worth it in my opinion unless you're a beginner and aren't sure if you're going to stick with it.

Also, you can probably get a better bass for $150. Look into used basses if you have to.

I can't speak for the bass, but I've played two Starcaster Strat copies, and they were, without any exaggeration, the worst guitars I've ever touched. I wouldn't have paid $10 for either of them. For $150 you can get any of several pretty good basses, so I suggest you put the Starcasters out of your mind.
Worth looking into: the weird old Japanese basses in eBay's vintage category. Some of those Teiscos and such were pretty dang good.

Starcasters are lower quality control than the basses that come in the starter packs which are affinities... you can get fender starter pack with amp and bass for $200 I think. Theres could be a jewel though, if you try about a thousand and five you're bound to find a half decent one

when in doubt, adjust the truss rod.

so are they worse than squire model basses?

What's a squire? I have heard of Squiers but not squires.

Sorry had to.

It depends on which Squier series your referring to. Bullet, Affinity, Standard, Classic vibe or Vintage modified?

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

try getting yourself an sx bass from rondomusic.com. 150 bucks shipped and worlds better than starcaster. same body and neck woods as genuine fenders decent electronics and hardware and great modding platforms.

Rump, a P-bass delivers a rump in the sound such that, similar to the rump on an African American woman, it is the highlight of the tone.
