    Oh great, now I have to get a white one to complete the set.

    Is it just my eyes, or do Starcasters have overly large headstocks? For reference, I only have a Bullet Strat, perhaps the Bullets have freakishly small headstocks? I dunno ???

    There's a metallic blue HSS one near me with Squier amp, soft case and strap for $75. However, I can't see the head stock in the only photo the sell has posted.

    Does anyone know if this is likely to be a conventional head stock or the spear point one? Don't want the latter.

    Most starcasters have the same large headstock as the mid 70's Fender. You will also find them on the new CV70's.
     
  5. … and the older ones too.
    Here's my 2013 CV 70's.

    Here is a rare example of a Starcaster with a smaller headstock. It is Indo.

    So the guy finally got back to me about the white one for sale. Said the serial number is:
    cws12143887

    Any thoughts on that one? Full thickness?

    From the sound of that serial number it'll be from the same factory as the red one above with the smaller headstock but produced the following year. I think they're all full body thickness though not positive.

    By the way OP good looking strat. Blackmore & Hendrix used black maple caps so it's not a bad look you're rocking.

    I resisted this one today for $70 but it took some will power. I just don't need another project. If he would have said $60 I probably would have taken it but I still wouldn't have needed another project.
