Thumbs up

I've had a Showster Savant III for about 9 years now. I love it. My Favorite SuperStrat.


I am a SuperStrat fan and the Showster has the best overall SuperStrat sound probably because it has single coils but I think Excellente was on to something with the metal loading.

The Showster has best sustain of all my SuperStrats hands down. Years ago I timed the sustain on all my guitars. Of course, my Gibson Les Paul had the best sustain but the Showster came in second followed by my Doubleneck. Excellente's metal loading made a big difference because the Showster has the thinest body of any of my guitars but the best sustain next to my LP.

The neck on my Showster is one of my favorites also. Very comfortable and great for shredding.

The ultra thin body on the Showster is simply the best guitar body that I have ever felt, seen or played.

Agree 100%. I own several high dollar Gibsons and Fenders and I rank my Savant III with the best of them. Definitely the best SuperStrat that I have ever played. They are very rare, probably only a few hundred left on the planet and they will probably never be any reissues because they are too expensive to make with the metal loaded super thin bodies.
