Description

Details

The Fender Alternate Reality Powercaster Electric Guitar in White Opal is a newly designed, offset solid body guitar from Fender. Devised with tonal versatility in mind this is a striking looking guitar with an adaptable sound for the guitarist who wants something different to your typical Strat or Tele shape.

Offset Alder Body

The Alternate Reality Powercaster has a solid alder body, a tonewood known for its good balance of frequencies and full-bodied tonal palette, it's great for rock and blues but also well suited to a myriad of other styles. The offset shape marries the tonal adaptability with an unusual look, making for a stunning looking and sounding guitar.

Married to the body is a roasted maple neck with a comfortable 'Modern C' shaped profile. The maple is quite literally roasted at high temperature to vulcanize the wood, resulting in a neck that has improved tone and increased sustain. Attached is a Pau Ferro fretboard that provides depth and warmth to your playing. With 22 medium jumbo frets, your hands can glide over the fretboard and the white dot inlays ensure you never lose your way.

Cutting Tone

The secret to the Alternate Reality Powercaster's cutting tone is the unusual pickup configuration. The Atomic Humbucker in the bridge position is one of the hotter Fender pickups with an open response, bags of natural harmonic overtones and a sweeping midrange. In the neck position, unconventionally for a Fender, you have an MP-90 Soapbar-style pickup in the neck position. The Soapbar pickup is best known for bridging the gap between single-coil and humbucker and is extremely versatile, being equally suited to jazz, blues and rock. On the Powercaster it gives oodles of twang and a gritty growl in equal measure.

Gig-Ready Hardware

The 6-Saddle Vintage-Style Adjusto-matic bridge paired with an Anchored-Tailpiece gives you ultimate tuning stability and intonation. Working in conjunction with the standard/cast sealed machine heads you can rely on this guitar no matter what your playing style.
