Yes, it's a brand new Classic Vibe Squier Starcaster, released in late July 2019, for Summer NAMM 2019.....I've known about 'em for 6 months.....
The Starcaster was a 70s hollowbody Fender guitar originally....
These were announced months ago.....$399.99 in the US
There's a huge difference between a hollowbody actual Fender or Squier Starcaster, and the Strat copy 'Starcaster by Fender' cheapies....
Some are showing up in the used market now, the Christmas gift guitar guys who gave up after 1-2 lessons.....
$330 for used though is ridiculous - it's worth $250-275 absolute maximum......
oh cool... I learned something new today
I'd really like to try one out. Apparently there's an affinity version along with the cv

Never saw one with Christmas lights.. no!
Semi-hollow. Like a 335.
For the OP. Leo Nocentelli of the Meters BITD:
If that was in Phoenix...I'd buy it.
Here's an original. Note the differences.
Thanks for catching that. My mistake.....
Also to note - Fender hasn't made real Wide Range CuNiFe magnet humbuckers since the 70s.....but I hear they are back on a certain USA model.....
All of these pickups are basically just a humbucker in a larger housing.....
The worship pastor at my last church had a burst finish Fender Starcaster and I did the setup for her on it. I thought it was a cool axe until I had it in my hands. When setting the intonation it about put my foot to sleep, it was so heavy. Even as a hollow body it had to weigh every bit of 10 1/2 pounds. I knew that day it would be the only time I would choose to play one.
She has had it for at least three years because she had it when she started working there in 2017.

Remember...it's a semi-hollow. Designed during a heavy is better time.
Cant say I'm a fan , body kinda reminds me of the evh wolfgang , might look OK if you put a tele neck on one though perhaps.
I played a new Fender version a couple of years ago at Sweetwater and couldn't put it down fast enough. Not for me.
I will say that the Ultra that was made for Robben was a much more 335ish guitar.
But these have their place...especially if you're into the Meters. Leo made it sound pretty damn good.
Kind of looks like it got left in a hot car in the summer.
