A friend of mine bought the Starcaster from this line of Fender guitars so I thought I'd get one of them myself. When I saw that this guitar had filtertron-style of pickups, I immediately thought about how I could make this guitar sound more like a Gretsch simply by swapping the pickups out for more "Gretsch" sounding filtertrons. I threw some Portertrons (made by Porter, obviously) in there and I haven't looked back since. This has become one of my favorite guitars to play. It's essentially a budget Gretsch guitar!
