Fender Modern Player Starcaster - Aged Cherry Burst - Rare Model

The Starcaster guitar is back. Virtually fabled since its original mid-to-late ’70s tenure, the seldom-seen Starcaster occupies a special place in Fender history as Fender’s one and only offset-waist semi-hollow electric guitar. Prized decades later by a new generation of adventurous guitarists with a flair for appealingly unconventional Fender style, the Starcaster now returns in fabulous new Modern Player form with greater sound, build and beauty that’ll have you seeing stars.

The Fender Starcaster guitar’s thin semi-hollow offset body has a bound maple top and back, with stylish bound f holes. Its “C”-shaped maple neck has a 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, black-dot inlays and the distinctively curvaceous Starcaster headstock. Other premium features include full-voiced dual Fender Wide Range humbucking pickups with three-way toggle switching, three-ply black pickguard, four skirted “amp”-style control knobs (volume and tone for each pickup) and an Adjusto-Matic bridge with anchored tailpiece.

PRS JA-15 Hollowbody Electric (Pre-Owned) - Solid Spruce Top with Figured Maple Back

The result of a collaboration between Paul Reed Smith and Paul Jackson, Jr., the JA-15 was originally designed with Jazz musicians in mind.

A semi-hollowbody electric guitar that's perfect for jazz, but can also handle any style you throw at it.

Ibanez 1982 Original Artist AS100 Semi Acoustic - Made in Japan - Inc. Hard Case

In 1980, Ibanez released the first version of the AS100, which was the original signature guitar from their Artist (AS) series. Later versions were released in 1981, 1982 and 1988. The AS100 is a semi-acoustic guitar, which is a hollow-body electric guitar with electric pickups and a sound box to enhance the sound of the guitar.

Body - The AS100 was factory painted with one of two finishes: antique violin or cherry. Both finishes were given a subtle starburst pattern along the front of the body. In 1988 only, a walnut finish was available. The body of the guitar was built of laminated maple and was completed with a mahogany neck, with the exception of the 1988 model, which was constructed out of a plain maple top and body.

Hardware - The original AS100 was equipped with gold hardware, which includes tuner pegs, pickup switches, frets, the nut, the bridge and volume controls. All of the later models were studded with chrome hardware. A dot inlay on the fret board was standard on all models, as was an ST bridge.

Pickups - The two 1980 models were equipped with Super 70 pickups for both the neck and bridge, with two-volume, two-tone, three-way controls. The 1981 and 1982 models were equipped with Super 58 pickups for both the neck and bridge, while the 1988 model was equipped with Hum pickups for both the neck and bridge. All AS100 guitars were equipped with a dual humbucker (HH) pickup configuration. A humbucker is an electric guitar pickup that uses coils to generate amplified sound from your strings. A dual humbucker configuration contains two humbuckers instead of one, for enhanced audio.
