Fender Starcaster Bass Maple Neck Black
"One of the rarest Fender instruments ever. Only a handful of prototype semi-hollow Starcaster Bass models appeared during the mid 1970s, distinctive as the only offset semi-hollow bass guitar in Fender history, to say nothing of its two enormous humbucking pickups." The Starcaster's semi hollow body is made from a bound maple back and top, with an alder sustain block, two stylish bound F holes, and no pickguard. The neck is made from maple with a maple board, "C" shape profile, shorter scale length of 30", and 22 medium jumbo frets. The bass is equipped with Wide Range bass humbucking pickups, like the original prototype Starcasters were. These pickups produce a full-bodied tonal character, and feature a cool vintage look. The bass has a Hi-Mass bridge for rock solid sustain and tuning stability. The bass also features "skirted amp" knobs, chrome hardware, and standard open gear tuning machines.
