Fender 'Starcaster' electric guitar (white) - £71.98 @Costco

Found 1st Nov 2013
Just received this month's Costco flyer - £20 off a white Fender Starcaster (not to be confused with Stratocaster, but still made by Fender) electric guitar, making it £71.98 (similar being sold for discounted price of £90 at Argos)

Having not played one I can't comment on the build, but I'm sure being made by Fender it would make a decent (cheap) guitar for any beginners

Details from flyer: Maple Headstock, Rosewood Fretboard, Chrome Hardware

It may have a Fender badge but it will be a Chinese/Indonesian copy of a Strat, you may be better off buying a Yamaha Pacifica.

Yamaha Pacifica is a copy of a Strat - and guess where they're made?
I've nothing against Yamaha, I own a couple 6/12 string acoustics and have only heard good things about their electrics. If the model you're thinking of can be bought for under £80, then I would consider it to be a deal as well

I'm not really sure what you're expecting for £72 (it is going to be made in China), but at least if you decide you don't like it, you can at least put it on ebay and get most of your money back, unlike some of the cheap no-name instruments that have been previously posted.

It's not deal of the century, but it's good for a beginner

Definitely a good deal for a beginner better than a lot of beginner guitars from the likes of encore.
