Product Description

A fresh design that remains all-Fender styling culminates in the Powercaster! This a guitar that has incredible vibe and a playing experience that is truly a joy thanks to a comfortable neck and unique electronics. The freshly-designed Powercaster was built from the ground up for high-octane musical fun and the ultimate in tonal versatility. Mixing the giant sound of an Atomic humbucking pickup with the articulate voice of a single-coil MP-90 soapbar pickup, this guitar’s tone has a bit of an edge to it – perfect for slashing through a dense mix. A roasted maple neck and sweeping pickguard adds some visual flair to this unique instrument.

The secret to this guitar’s slashing tone is the pickup configuration. Unusual for a Fender guitar, we combined the girth of a humbucking bridge pickup with the edgy punch of a single-coil MP-90 soapbar neck pickup. The ‘Modern C’-shaped neck is crafted from roasted maple, which makes it strong and resonant, as well as giving it an alluring look. The 9.5 inch-radius fingerboard is fast-playing and 22 medium-jumbo frets offer a familiar playing feel while extending the guitar’s range. The 24.75 inch scale length gives the Powercaster a unique feel and voice, and the strings are easier to bend thanks to the reduced tension of the shorter scale. For rock-solid tuning stability we added an Adjusto-matic bridge and sealed tuning machines.

With its offset body, unique pickup configuration and roasted maple neck, the Powercaster is just the thing to add some muscle to your music. Includes deluxe gig bag.

Very Interesting Guitar
Product Rating

Product Review

This is a really cool guitar once you get used to it. It honestly took some time to grow on me. Very easy to play and if you are comfortable around a Fender modern C carve, this will feel right at home to you. Roasted neck is nice to look at and the finish on the back is very easy to glide up and down on. Don't be put off by the scale length. It's a Fender through and through, just a little easier to play than a 25.5 IMHO. The P90 is noisy as he77 but turn the gain down a notch or two and it really shines. Great bite and clarity. Excellent for blues and classic rock. The Atomic in the bridge is decent but nothing to write home about. It's a bit bright for my tastes. Fit and finish is very good. Top notch for a MiM Fender. Fretwork is good, no spouts and the frets feel nice and polished. No "Fender pick holders" in the neck pocket - a well put together guitar that exemplifies why MiM is such a great value. Overall it's a great guitar for blues, punk,rock, alternative and classic rock. Probably not a first choice for high gain or metal. If you have the opportunity to try this guitar go for it. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Wow

Product Review

This is amazing. Truth be told, the set up wasn't good out the box, (sky high action, bowed neck, probably due to different climate conditions here in PA), but after a couple minutes of tinkering with the truss rod and the bridge, it plays amazing. The p90 sounds great in the neck, and delivers a fat bright, and the atomic humbucker pumps out some killer sounds. Great for 80s metal to classic rock, very ery hot. Feels great, bevels make it very comfortable. Light weight. Fun to play, low action, no fret buzz. I love the neck. Holds tune very well. The pao ferro fret board looks a lot better in person than the pictures, with the wood grain really showing some variety. Almost a cross between royal ebony and rose wood. Great overall, can't wait to gig with it.

This guitar is gorgeous.

Product Review

This guitar is one of my favorite Fender guitars I have ever picked up. After having a Blacktop Jaguar that I heavily modded for years, it is nice to have found something so solid right out of the factory. It basically is exactly what I modded my Jaguar to be, with a very similar HS and switch setup. The flame on the neck is light but beautiful, and the roasted maple is super quick and easy to play. The White Opal is probably one of my favorite finishes as well. Classy, but cool. While the pickups are a TOUCH bright in conjunction with the guitar (especially the humbucker in the bridge), I really do think it's a guitar most anybody playing a wide range of music can enjoy. It is warm and big and bluesy in the neck, and cutting/in your face in the bridge. I'm replacing the bridge pickup with something more beefy and rounded, but it is still a cool guitar out of the box!

Excellent craftsmanship and quality components throughout.

Product Review

The roasted neck is a joy to hold and the combination of the PAF Humbucker bridge and the P90 is the sweetest thing Fender has done in years.
