The awesome tone comes from a Seymour Duncan® SH-1N RP ’59 reverse-polarity humbucking pickup at the neck and a Seymour Duncan® SHPGP-1B Pearly Gates Plus™ humbucking pickup at the bridge, plus special five-position switching.
The set neck and 24 frets add up and become a speedway for serious fretwork. The Fender® cast/sealed locking tuning machines help keep the tuning nice and stable, as well as making the two point tremolo actually useful.
Other features include smoked-chrome hardware, knurled knobs, a graphite nut and a two-point synchronized tremolo bridge.

What Players Are Saying…
…"This guitar is amazing! I just got it, and already I am impressed, the Seymour Duncans make this a smokin` axe, and the tremolo is mandatory, without question. Excellent job, Fender!"
…"Even when you set a high gain sound on your amp the pickup tones are very distinguishable. This is EASILY the best guitar I’ve ever owned!"
…"This guitar is a KEEPER!"
…"As soon as I plugged`er in, I noticed the action was very smooth, instead of playing the notes, I rather glided over them. The sustain is also worth noting and the pickups sound great, even with no saturation or heavy gain!"
…"Got this about 2 weeks ago, and can`t seem to put it down. The Showmaster has become my weapon of choice!"
