Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge Unveils Signature Fender Starcaster

Blink-182 guitarist and co-lead vocalist Tom DeLonge has unveiled a new signature Starcaster guitar by Fender.

This one-of-a-kind Starcaster has many changes to the original, released in the 1970s. It features an offset semi-hollow body, “C” neck shape, 12″-radius rosewood fingerboard and DeLonge’s logo on the neckplate.

DeLonge’s first public performance with the guitar was on display during Blink-182’s current global tour in support of the album, One More Time.

He shared its video on Instagram.

“I love this guitar, I really do. It’s the coolest guitar ever made. Firstly, it is called a Starcaster-that’s the most important thing. It goes to space and expands your mind,” DeLonge said in a statement.

He added, “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.”
