Andy Powers POWERS ELECTRIC A-Type FF-42 HardTail #A494 hollow body electric guitar is heavily influenced by the area where Andy grew up : San Diego’s North County, close to the beach, where he was immersed in a vibrant cultural stew of surfing, skateboarding, auto craft, music, art and architecture — a rich mix of creative expression.
Powers Electric are guitars with great musical utility, one that feels amazing every time you pick it up — inspiring you to explore fresh ideas while allowing you to sound more like you. This is a guitar for electric players who don’t want to be a stereotype.
Making each part of this guitar demands some really labor-intensive craftsmanship. In fact, aside from the tuners and strings, everything about this guitar was designed and made in-house. This means Powers Electric can only craft guitars in small numbers.
Andy's first creation is the A-Type hollow body electric guitar.

The body was inspired by the lines of classic cars, hot rods and surfboard design. The guitar had to look good from every angle. Andy wanted an asymmetrical shape without sacrificing visual balance, and timeless styling with modern embellishments.
Like a surfboard or roadster, every line was considered both for its looks and its handling. This is a fully enclosed, slim hollowbody design.
The guitar to be lightweight and perfectly balanced whether you’re standing or sitting. The body is hollow so you can hold it with ease, and the contoured armrest and radiused body edges add to the playing comfort. It's a trussed hollowbody with two internal soundposts fitted into a braced, solid-wood top. This allows the top and back to move in tandem to maximize resonance, suppress feedback and create a lyrical sustain.

The neck is a “just right” blend of not too big and not too slim, flowing smoothly into the unique fretboard geometry. The fretboard has a split radius, different than an end-to-end compound radius. It’s asymmetrical from the bass side to the treble side. The treble side is slightly flatter all the way from the first fret to the end of the board. This allows for maximum playability and easier, choke-free string
bending.

Pickups are a new design that blends modern magnetic structure with an old inspiration. It allows the strings to vibrate more naturally and produce both fidelity and colorful warmth – which often tend to be at odds with one another but beautifully complement each other within this design. Two variations of this pickup are available : FF42 emphasizing clarity and warmth, PF42 with a firm, brighter response.

The “camshaft” tailpiece (“CamTail”) tremolo with string ramps compensated for tension and gauge so when you dive on it, the strings move in pitch unison relative to each other (similar to moving chords and maintaining relative pitch on a lap and pedal steel).
The CamTail also contains a locking mechanism that stops the vibrato back at its normal pitch and allows the player to bend notes without pitch droop. Andy calls it a zero-point return. It can be easily adjusted to allow for a full floating vibrato.
