Futurama was a very well known name amongst British guitar bands of the early 1960s. It was a brand created by Selmer, who were the biggest instrument supplier in the UK at the time, but none of the guitars were British-made. George Harrison used one in his early days, and in 1960s Futurama advertising is quoted "it's a great guitar". Earliest models, like Harrison's hailed from Czechoslovakia made by Delicia / Resonet, and CSHN, but by 1963 higher-quality instruments by Swedish maker Hagstrom were being sold under the Futurama name.
The Hagstrom models were identical to the Hagstrom guitars sold in the United States and Europe, so for further information please refer to the relevant pages in the Hagstrom section of this site.
