I've never seen a parts list with part numbers for Showmasters, and since they were made in Korea, it's very possible even Fender doesn't have those. Still, I'd suggest you try contacting Fender Consumer Relations via the Support pages - and if you get the parts list/ part numbers, post them here.

Fender finally responded. Here is the parts list, with their parts numbers included.

Thanks for sharing, this might be helpful for other SM-HH owners, too.


Just a thought that appeared from the deep dark realms of my subconsciousness the other night; have you checked (& tightened, if needed) the screws on the tuner pearl ends? The 'all tuners not holding tune' symptom might suggest those are too loose. But don't overdo the tightening, those plastic washers can crack.

Keep in mind that the part numbers from Fender are most likely for the original imported parts, and not domestic upgrades.
Tuners are relatively generic and you should have no trouble upgrading those.
The issue with the bridge, as Stratele52 said, is the fitment.
The American bridge in the original post may work well, but because of the sourcing of import parts for Korean production, sometimes small changes are made in measurements to avoid patent infringement... it's like breaking the earpiece on your Oakley's while on vacation in Mexico, and finding out that the "Fakeleys" sold in local stores for $20 have earpieces that won't match.

The critical measurement for the bridge is the spacing between the posts.
Since both the original and American plates use "U" cuts and not a "U......L_" like the Wilkinson, any difference in post spacing would mean that the American bridge will not fit.
It would suck to spend almost $200 to find that it won't fit.

Personally, I'd replace the tuners and leave the bridge alone.

Or learning that the luxurious jeweled Swiss-movement wristwatch you bought at a tienda in Tijuana for fifteen hundred bucks is actually a twenty-dollar Made-in-Malaysia "Raoulex".
