"This is a guitar for electric players who don’t want to be a stereotype." ~ Andy Powers


The A-Type from Powers Electric, Andy Power's new 'solo project' (Andy is the head designer, president, and CEO of Taylor Guitars), is a breath of fresh, Southern California air in a world of copy-cat guitars. Drawing inspiration from the car (each color is inspired by a specific car color), surfing, and music cultures he grew up around, Andy set out to build the guitar that would deliver a sound, look, and feel that he didn’t have, which meant starting from scratch - no small task, to put it lightly!

From the body to the headstock, everything on the A-Type is made in-house, which means smaller production numbers given the labor-intensive craftsmanship involved. Let’s take a quick look at what makes the A-Type special from a technical perspective...

The body is slim, hollow and fully enclosed. Inside, it contains two soundposts, similar to the soundpost in a violin, that allow the front and back to move together, increasing resonance and sustain while reducing feedback.

The colorful knobs (and trem arm cap) are shop-crafted in-house from layers of surfboard resin, which originally was a byproduct of the surfboard glassing process. Because of this, no two resin knobs look exactly alike.

The trem/vibrato system features a “camshaft tailpiece,” which Andy calls a CamTail for short. It’s machined in-house and compensates for the string characteristics so the strings stay in tune as the pitch changes. 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. It can be easily adjusted to allow for a full floating vibrato.

Andy's original design FF42 and PF42 pickups. The FF42 are the warmer of the two pickups and use a “full Faraday” cage made with 42-gauge wire. Visually, it’s engine turned on top, reminiscent of hot rod detailing. The PF42, “partial Faraday” pickup, creates a firmer, brighter sound and visually features matching pickguard material.

An asymmetrical fingerboard radius - which is slightly flatter on the treble side for easy, better- sounding string bends.
