Fender Alternate Reality Powercaster

White Opal, Pau Ferro

Loading product options

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 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 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”-radius fingerboard is fast-playing and 22 medium-jumbo frets offer a familiar playing feel while extending the guitar’s range. The 24.75” 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.
