The Return Of The Fender Starcaster And Coronado

FenderWow! Folks have been hoping for this one for a looooong time. Fender has reissued the hollow-body Coronado and Starcaster models. The Coronado was released in 1966, featuring a pair of Fender’s Wide Range humbuckers. The Starcaster followed a decade later. These new models, part of the Modern Player range, aren’t straight reissues – but that’s probably gonna make many players happy, since the original versions weren’t without their critics. Plus, modern construction techniques are probably gonna make these puppies a little more consistent than their vintage ancestors. I’m totally psyched about these and I can’t wait to try one. Here’s more info, and check out the video below of artists from Local Natives, The Mowglis, Frightened Rabbit, Surfer Blood and The Soft White Sixties ┬áreacting to the new models.
