                I found one similar to Fuzztone's (seafoam green) at a tag sale for $5. Needed new tuners and electronics. Neck was really nice quartersawn maple, but a touch too small for me. It's now one of my friend's favorite instruments.

                    Fuzztone has a Revival series, which prompted the Fender lawsuit. VERY good copies. Mine is identical other than the minor headstock change brought on by said lawsuit. Mine is the LS-1 model.

                            The "hook-nosed" headstock variation was only made in 1985-'86. The saddles on this one are stamped "FSRG" (Fernandes Sound Research Group) and "The Revival." A prior owner was apparently embarrassed to have the Fernandes logo on the headstock so that was removed, but the "Limited Edition" designation was left intact. Fantastic strat.
