I bought a Korean Showmaster FSR from Musicians Friend about 7 years ago for $300, and I'll probably never part with it:
Set neck w/ rosewood (side dots only), carved alder body, black w/ black hardware, Duncan pups (sound like JB's), TUSQ nut, 2 point trem w/ brass tone block. Beautiful fretwork and finish details - stays in tune forever; sounds clean when I need it to and growls when I want it to.
US Showmasters with primo wood and transparent finishes are typically $800+ if you can find one . . .
