Not mine,it's on ebay in the UK







I was always interested in the Futurama because George had one. His was the earlier "Resonet" model.

He said he got that because it was the closest thing to a Strat he could find. I like the 3+3 headstock better.

I still want a "snakehead" tele with the prototype lapsteely headstock.

Futurama is an import brand of Selmer. I think these horrid things were made in Italy. You can also find Futurama badged Hagstroms, which are better quality.
