I use a Gibson Les Paul and a Saga Telecaster into a Boss BD-2, a Danelectro Grilled Cheese (not very often, mind you), a Danelectro FAB Distortion, a BBE Sonic Stomp, a Boss TU-12 tuner, and a Digitech RP250 (also not very often) into a Line 6 Spider III 30 amp. Someday, though, I hope to get a Vox Tonelab and run it into a power amp and 4x12 cab.

The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

Just for your reference, your guitar is just a Starcaster, not a Fender Starcaster.
This is a Fender Starcaster:

i know that its from Wikipedia( deemed evil), but at least i found something:

The Starcaster of the 1970s and early 80s is not to be confused with the guitars from the recent Starcaster by Fender range, aimed at novice guitarists- Wikipedia


so if this article is correct, then my StarCaster is the "newer" version you could say.

Well, I think they just took the name from the older one because it wasn't very popular and, frankly, sounds like stratocaster if you don't know the difference.

It's far from a remake of the old starcaster, it is essentially a Strat ripoff that Fender put out so that it could compete with low level yamaha, first act, lyons, etc. guitars at walmart, sam's, and costco.

But I'm still not sure why Fender would want to compete at that market level.

I mainly play noisy rock n' roll, with tinges of folk and psychedelia. You can check out my band's myspace if you like (www.myspace.com/brotherhoodoftheblacksquirrel).

Eventually I'd like to run this all into my Bassman 100.....but I need a cab....and the little 5-Watters already annoy the neighbors enough to threaten police action...
