  • Fender Showmaster

    Anybody have experience with the foreign-made Fender Showmaster? I am thinking about buying one and want to learn more about it.

    Thanks,
    Starkey

        Damn, this is tempting. The question is, which color? The blue or black. I'm kinda leaning towards the blue....

          Dammit!

          I'd say jump on it. I bought the Celtic H Showmaster last year when they dropped the price to $250 and I've been happy with it, but it's a hardtail with a single Atomic Humbucker and single volume knob. One with a tremolo and Duncans for the same price would be sweet, but I'm not really in the market for another guitar.

              I think the black looks cool.
              I like how the fingerboard has no inlays.

                They are now $249 after $50 off. EMAIL THEM FOR YOUR MONEY BACK IF YOU BOUGHT ONE.

                I pricematched mine down to $249 no problems.

                      I have had the Showmaster Black Cherry Quilted Maple Hum Hum guitar since March. My wife bought it for my birthday. It is a fantastic guitar. The 59 Pearly Gates combination sounds great. There is nothing I don't like about this guitar. IMHO the Korean Showmasters are first rate.

                        I've definately been gassing over the Natural FMT (Flamed Maple) one. Gorgeous but I never wanted to pay over $600 for it. Now this one, the same thing just with a blue metallic that I happen to also like. Dammit. Must....resist.....

                              They are having tons of great deals this go around. Just last night I bought some M-Audio BX8 studio monitors for my PODxt. They are normally $499 they were blowing them out for $299. Had to jump on that deal. Now I want this Showmaster too dammit!!!
