SUMMER NAMM 2019: Squier has brought back Fender’s cult ’70s semi-hollow, the Starcaster, for three new electric guitars.

The Starcaster now appears in the Classic Vibe, Contemporary Active and Affinity Series, each spec’d slightly differently.

Classic Vibe-wise, you’re looking at Fender-designed Wide Range humbuckers, period-correct headstock markings, a vintage-tint gloss neck finish, 3-Tone Sunburst finish and nickel hardware.

The surprise Surf Pearl-finished Contemporary Active model, meanwhile, boasts high-output Squier SQR humbuckers, and features a sealed semi-hollow body to cut down on feedback.

Finally, the entry-level Affinity Series model offers Squier humbuckers and a satin neck finish, and comes in Candy Apple Red and Olympic White finishes.
