Warmoth "Mooncaster"

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by BassHappy, Dec 4, 2013.


  1. From my contact Cary at Warmoth

    "Warmoth is prototyping a Starcaster Bass style, which we will be calling the Mooncaster. It’s going to be a short-scale offering (30” or 32”); not available in a 34” scale version."

    I don't see it on the site yet, just thought you short and medium guys would want to know.

    Very cool. Excited to see the bass version hit the page! And if they can do it in 30" scale, what says they can't make a Bass VI version?

    Surely you could get one without any drilling, fit a P or J neck and put the bridge in the right place to make it all work?

    Nice. The thing that was holding me back from the Fender version was the 30" scale, but I'm all about 32's.

    It'll also be nice to have the option of a more traditional headstock. I've always liked Starcasters, but I feel the headstock is the aesthetic weak point.
