This Fender Starcaster is a dreadnought style guitar which is clearly superior to most entry and intermediate level instruments, with great playability and a bright, resonant sound. It is in virtually spotless condition—with one major exception, which I will describe below. Otherwise, it apparently is a store demonstration model, and as I hope the pictures demonstrate, this is a sharp-looking instrument.
Since I have no actual specs for the Starcaster, I’m going to resort to quoting some actual owners of this model from Amazon. Please consider them for what they’re worth:
“The instrument feels solid and well-made, not cheap and flimsy like some other 'kit guitars' I'd looked at. It's got a nice, warm tone and overall appearance. Incredible value!”
“The guitar has a nice sound, and the action on it seems decent enough. Maybe if you're a professional or guitar enthusiast it's worth getting something high end, but for me, as a novice, I can't really tell much a difference. Nothing on this guitar looks "cheap". The tuning pegs all appear to be stainless steel, the wood looks nice and the wood looks nice and polished. I am very pleased!”
“I decided to spend my money on this Fender Starcaster because it has a brand name that I know I can trust. When it came 6 days later I thought that it was just going to be an average guitar that I have used before that is just decent quality. But no, this guitar sounds amazing, and it's just plain good to look at. Ha ha, I'm very satisfied with my purchase!”
Now, about that problem I mentioned: this guitar was apparently dropped by a customer, and the headstock was broken. The store’s technician repaired it, but the repair is quite visible—if you’re looking at the back of the neck. From the front, the guitar still looks virtually new. The crack did not touch the front of the headstock, and since the crack is long, the glued surface areas are large enough to ensure a long-term bond. It’s just kinda homely, from the back.
Buyer pays a low flat rate of $38 for shipping to the lower 48 states; shipping costs elsewhere will be negotiated as necessary. Payment by Paypal is preferred; cashier’s checks are acceptable, but checks must clear before the guitar will be shipped.
I have tried to be perfectly clear and accurate in describing this instrument, so its return will not be accepted unless it can be shown that it was egregiously misrepresented in this listing. Please check out the pictures and ask any questions you might have before offering to buy it.
Payments by Paypal, cashier’s checks, money orders, or personal checks are acceptable, but all payments must clear my bank before the guitar will be shipped. I will CONSIDER reasonable offers, even including installment payments and trade-ins, but generally since I already attempt to price my guitars very competitively, unusual deals must be unusually sweet.
From henceforth [that's how retired English teachers talk], insurance and shipping to the lower 48 states is $55 due to constantly rising shipping costs unless a specific listing says otherwise; shipping costs elsewhere will be negotiated as necessary. I have sold guitars to Russia, Japan, Australia, and over 50 other countries, as well as almost every state in the USA. Since some of my guitars travel thousands of miles, I take care to use lots of packing materials, protect the neck inside the case, and of course de-tune the strings.
I make every effort to describe and illustrate each guitar and case with scrupulous accuracy. However, many of my instruments are well-played vintage items which are many years old, and I am not a luthier. One should assume that any guitar will require some set-up to satisfy your personal requirements, and that not every flaw or ding will be seen/recognized/described in the listing. Thus the return of an instrument will not be accepted unless it can be shown that it was egregiously misrepresented in this listing. Please read the listing carefully, check out the pictures, and ask any questions you might have before offering to buy.
