So the other day I went into some shop and I saw this guitar that caught my attention. Unfortunately I don't have a picture but here are some specs:

- strat shaped body
- the "Fender" logo on the headstock was, how to explain, metallic silver, like on an Ibanez RG.
- neck through body
- no pickguard and two humbuckers (the previous owner had replaced them with Seymour Duncan I Dunno Whats)
- the finish was this dark red cherry thing, kinda like this
- 1 volume, 1 tone, 5 way switch
- medium jumbo frets I think
- if I remember correctly, the tremolo was the 2 point kind

I dunno, I looked awesome from a distance, however when I played it it was poorly set up (action too high, bit of a fretbuzz). The store guy said it was indeed a genuine Fender, but made in Koreea.

So what's the deal with this, is this some Fender model that I'm not familiar with, or some kind of joke?
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Fender did make a few whacky overseas superstrat models back in the '80s to compete with Ibanez and Yamaha. Could be real I guess..

By high-gain I don't mean stupid stuff. I just mean styles like Motley Crue or Iron Maiden

Yeah, I suppose that's what it was. I didn't know about Showmasters.

Looked like this:



Sooo... is this thing worth 500 Euros used, and with Seymour Duncans?

Well I don't have anything against the guy, but OK. Hope I don't hurt him too badly.

This is a Showmaster. My friend used to have one. I liked the way that thing played.
He said that it was one of the best guitars he ever owned.
