Was that REALLY George's old Futurama in that last picture in the link? I didn't think it looked "relic'd" enough. It looks, in the words of Madonna, "all shiny and new."
Maybe it's been refinished. It looks good. Too good.
I will say this: I wish Fender Stratocasters came with the ability to make all 7 different pickup combinations. Stock Stratocasters come with 5 pickup combinations. At one time it seems that at one time some had a pushbutton switch that would turn on the bridge pickup when the regular toggle switch had selected the neck pickup or the neck-and-middle pickups.
The problem with the Futurama is that 2 (on or off) to the third power(three pickup switches)is 8, with one of them being silence. Which is what happened in the music store when George first tried it out. All three individual pickup switches were switched off.
Those of you who don't play electric guitar are probably saying "Huh???"
Well you can see it has a lot of wear on some of the frets and at the bottom of the body on the guitar so I would assume that is the real guitar without seeing the serial number on the back of the headstock. Don't know where Sean had it stored all these years, probably in a safe somewhere knowing that he didn't play or use the guitar for anything. I don't think he ever even put it on show at any museums.
