This guy I know bought a Fender Starcaster, and is claiming it to be a Stratocaster. Whenever I tell him its not, he claims it is. So my question is, is the
Starcaster a Stratocaster?

hell no

the star caster is a hollow body

the strat is solid

Cause there music is heavy.

Definitely not. Some would argue that a Squier shouldn't even be called a Stratocaster(doesn't bother me, though). A Starcaster isn't even as good as a Squier.

definately not.

Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

after a bit of research, there is a new guitar called the starcaster which is a knock off strat that is built quite cheaply and makes a Squier look like gold

Muso, thats not the only Starcaster out there.
There are various types that makes Squier look good like Valo said.

They're worst than a Squier through a box of bees.

Sort of.

You're talking about a Fender Starcaster.


Fender confused the public recently with a new line of guitars called ...

Starcaster by Fender

Shoddy merchandise with the Fender name on it.


Here's their Strat pak:



Sold only in the "finest" warehouse stores:Sam's Club page

Point to the headstock and show him that it says STARCASTER in big black letters.

I've got the Sam's Club Starcaster, and I like that it looks like the Strat. It's my first guitar and came with everything I needed to get started. It didn't cost me an arm and a leg just to see if I'd like it enough to stick with it.

Well, if everyone keeps saying how much better a Strat is compared to a Starcaster, I'm really excited about eventually upgrading to a Strat. I've never even picked up a Strat to compare it to, but I think the quality of the Starcaster is fairly good.

So am I going to really be amazed and inspired on that day when I purchase a Stratocaster?

Some dude in my guitar class has a Starcaster. Paid $200 for it, including an amp.

So sad
86% of the people who frequent the "Electric Guitar" forum would say that they have played guitar for under 5 years.

hey, **** yall! My starcaster is the best ever! I'm not just noobing, because, it weighs a ton, but its sounds like 20X better than my friend's Squire. that was when they had them with the arrow headstock instead of the strat copy though. the ones I've seen you talk about are ****. i would never sell my starcaster. its definately not a strat though.

No theres a diffrence. I have a Starcaster. Its a hollow body unlike a Stratocaster which is a SOLID!!

Do you not pay attention? Fender confused a lot of people. They recycled the name for their own Strat knockoff. They actually aren't bad with a little modding either.
