Grazioso guitars were solid body electrics made in Czechoslovakia by the Drevokov factory (Resonet) from 1955 onwards. Selmer of London began importing and distributing these in the UK around 1958. These instruments typically had Grazioso on the headstock with Resonet on the pickguard. The model name was soon changed to Futurama by 1959. These guitars were the nearest thing available to a Stratocaster in the UK at the time and were played by notable emerging musicians including George Harrison and Jimmy Page.
