So does anyone else out there have a Showmaster?

I just picked up a virtually brand new 2004 Special Edition HH for my wall of shame - the protective film and inspection stickers are still on the back covers. I got a killer deal on the guitar, a Fender / G&G case (black with black interior), and a Frontman 25R amp with cable. It was all unused since it was purchased new in 2004 - truly a closet classic.

The finish is transparent brown over quilted bubinga ... wow, that's a mouthful.

After installing a new set of strings (and putting some lemon oil on the fretboard to help cure the storage blues at the same time) it's sounding pretty darn good - those S-D humbuckers have been waiting much too long for their chance to howl!

Cheers ...
