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.

What is your opinion of this product?
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.
What is your opinion of this product?
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.
