The Fender Starcaster is a hollowbody while the Stratocaster is solid.


Starcasters are no longer in production.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Unless you're talking about the one from the '70s, then yes.

I love semihollows.

I have one of the older starcasters that I bought from a friend. It was made in Indonesia, (I think the ones pictured are made in China) and it has a triangle thingy headstock. it doesn't have that fender curve. Its my first guitar but its not that bad. for a starter guitar i think its actually ok. (I HATE the triangle heastock though, it looks terrible)

The 70s hollow-body starcasters are cool, but the new ones are more or less cheap strats.

The new ones could probably be decent provided you put some money into it. I believe they're Basswood, so that's somewhat suitable.

If you couldn't make the best out of an instrument, blame yourself, not the guitar.


They are no worse than a Squier Bullet or even a Standard. And their basswood instead of agathis.

I only played the one at Sams or whatever but it felt really cheap and yes the frets were sharp. I've heard they are extremely hard to keep in tune. too Some things can't be fixed and I'm sure timzee117 and friend gave it their best.

Mine holds a tune and has good fretwork.

It sounds good for a $100 guitar. Once I swap the pots and pups, it will sound exactly how I want it to, which is all that matters to me.

But QC varies from guitar to guitar, no what name is on the headstock.
