    Fender Modern Player Starcaster Electric Bass, with Maple Fingerboard Product Description

    The Fender Starcaster Bass guitar's thin semi-hollow offset body has a bound maple top and back, with stylish bound f-holes. A short-scale bass (30"), it has a "C"-shaped maple neck topped by the distinctively curvaceous Starcaster headstock, and a 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and black-dot inlays. Other premium features include dual Fender Wide Range humbucking bass pickups with three-way toggle switching, four skirted amp-style control knobs (volume and tone for each pickup) and a four-saddle Fender Hi-Mass bridge.

    Fender introduces a new model of what is surely one of its rarest-ever instruments, the semi-hollow Starcaster Bass. Only a handful of prototype models appeared during the mid-1970s, unusually distinctive as the only offset semi-hollow bass guitar in Fender history (to say nothing of its two enormous humbucking pickups). After decades of virtually fabled status, the Starcaster Bass now reappears in electrifying form with superior sound, build and beauty ideal for bassists with a flair for appealingly unconventional Fender style.
