As long as “Alien’s Exist,” Tom DeLonge of blink-182 will have a guitar in his hand. The iconic guitarist is putting his signature Starcaster® in the hands of fans, thanks to Fender. The signature release marks his second with the brand and costs $1,199.99.

The Starcaster comes in four different colorways: Shoreline Gold, Olympic White, Surf Green, and Shell Pink. DeLonge first premiered the Squier® Starcaster® in 2022, and as an experienced musician in a pop-punk band, he’s got to amp up some of the features of his instrument. “I made some changes to the original Starcaster®; I’ve streamlined the electronics,” he explains in a video from Fender. “Added the 70s headstock to round out the weight and chose the matte finish with black hardware, so its look matches its modern feel. This guitar shows my evolution as a player but also has the hallmarks of where I came from and what I’m about.”

Along with the initial guitar collaboration, this partnership includes other accessories to embody your full pop-punk energy. This DeLonge and Fender release includes a guitar strap that says “To The Stars,” guitar picks with the same phrase, and a lightning-yellow guitar cord.

Fans can catch the guitar in action this summer when blink-182 embarks on tour with Pierce The Veil, Alexisonfire, and The Story So Far. Check out where they’re heading below and grab tickets through their site
