Fender Announces New Tom DeLonge Starcaster Guitar

Blink 182 fans can get their hands on a new Starcaster guitar specifically designed in collaboration with guitarist Tom DeLonge, Fender announced today.

“I love this guitar, I really do. It’s the coolest guitar ever made,” DeLonge says of the new Tom DeLonge Starcaster Guitar. “Firstly, it is called a Starcaster — that’s the most important thing. It goes to space and expands your mind.”

“I made some changes to the original Starcaster,” he continues. “I’ve streamlined the electronics, added the 70s headstock to round out the weight, and chose the matte finish with black hardware, so its look matches its modern feel. This guitar shows my evolution as a player but also has the hallmarks of where I came from and what I’m about.”

The semi-hollow guitar is perfect for guitarists looking to play “chunky power chords and crunchy riffs,” according to the guitar company.

The axe retails for $1,199.99 and comes in four finishes: shoreline gold, surf green, Olympic white and shell pink. For more info, visit Fender.com.
