Very beautiful guitar
Peter Marvin, 20.06.2020
This guitar looks awesome and sounds very good. Its body shape makes it unique among all the other semi-hollow guitars.
The pickups sound very good and they don't feel like they're cheep at all. I also think that they sound a little brighter than the usual humbuckers. After all, they're "Wide range"
The back of the neck, although lacquered, feels very fast and the shape of it very comfortable for your hand.
I am a little concerned about the F-holes because I don't have a case and the electronics inside the guitar are exposed to dust. So getting a case might be a good idea for a semi-hollow guitar.
The Tone pots do a nice job. The Volume pots on the other hand give you a steep result, so be aware of that.
The Fretwork is nice but I would expect it to be a bit better for this price range.

Pros
1. Overall build quality
2. Sounds good acoustically
3. Feels nice in your hands
4. Good pickups

Cons
1. Volume pots
2. Fretwork

Personally, I enjoy playing this guitar as an alternative to a solid guitar.
Just be aware of the cons I mention.

Ging leider zurück
Hotzenplotz63, 12.10.2020
Wirklich sehr schöne Gitarre, hat von der Optik voll überzeugt, wobei der Dreiwege Schalter und die Volumen und Tonregler leider etwas billig wirken. Die Gitarre ging zurück, weil die Tonabnehmer meiner Meinung nach defekt waren, und im vergleich zu meiner Ibanez höchstens 1/3 der Leistung brachten. Die Volumen Einstellung war erst ab 8-10 funktionsfähig. Schade, man sollte einer so schönen Gitarre eine etwas hochwertiger Technik spendieren. Die Bünde waren sehr scharfkantig an den Rändern und auch nicht gleich hoch .
Nachtrag: Nach dem die Gitarre zurück ging und bei Thomann nicht mehr lieferbar war, habe ich sie mir nochmal bei einem Mitbewerber bestellt, diese war etwas besser verarbeitet, Volumenregler abarbeiteten aber auch erst ab 7-8 ich hab das so hingenommen und die Gitarre behalten weil sie mir so gut gefiel. Nach 10 Monaten Spuckte ein Volumenregler und ich habe die Gitarre eingeschickt, und siehe da als sie zurück kam funktionierte auf einmal alles richtig gut, Volumenregler reagierten auf einmal sofort ab 1 wie es sein sollte und die ganze Klampfe hatte irgendwie mehr Saft. Als ich den Reperaturbericht las hatten sie nur die Lötstellen nachgearbeitet. Also nicht die Technik ist es sondern die Verarbeitung.

Wirklich gelungen!
Martin N. 385, 12.03.2020
Ein Mix aus Fender Maple Neck und Gibson ES Body. Perfekt!
Im September bestellt und die Tage angekommen. Verarbeitung, Lack und Technik ohne Mängel. Poties laufen linear von kristallklar bis jazzig-matt. An einem Fender Blues Junior und Blues Deluxe ist alles drin, super clean bis creamy blues. Pedale kein Problem - Mooer Blues Mood und Mooer Ensemble King. Die PU's sind von Squier und nicht von Fender wie 2019 vorgestellt. Und das ist auch besser so. Ein schöner, klarer, kräftiger Klang, besser als die Fender Humbucker.
Die Starcaster ist ordentlich gewölbt und richtig dick in der Mitte, kein Brett. Klingt schon trocken laut und klar.
Und ist einfach schick mit Stil. Nix von der Stange..
Ganz klare Kaufempfehlung, wer weiß, wie lange es die im Handel gibt...

Great out of the box!
housing, 08.05.2020
The guitar feels and sounds great! the pickups are clear and dynamic. The neck and frets feel very high quality. The only thing I will change will be the wiring as the volume and tone pots do not give you much range.

The guitar I received came with a card saying that it was the one Thomann used for the photographs, and there were one or two small scratches on the back. Not a big deal, just thought I would mention it for the perfectionists.

I would highly recommend the Starcaster, and think Squier has done a great job!
