Found a Maestro Fuzz-Tone FZ-1A in my basement. Trying to figure out if this is a legitimate original. I noticed most of the pictures I have come across come from Kalamazoo Michigan, however the one I found is from Nashville, Tennessee. Otherwise everything looks legitimate. Can anyone tell me if I have stumbled across a vintage rock classic?
Thanks

About 10 years ago, Gibson reissued the Maestro Fuzz-Tone FZ1-A. The reissues all say Nashville Tenn on them instead of Kalamazoo Mich. If I recall correctly, they came across a pile of transistors used in the original & built a limited number of these in China using up the supply of tansistors on hand. Everything, including the orange box was designed after the original. The other difference, the original had a grey chord, with a molded 90 deg 1/4 guitar jack attatched, the reissue had a 1/4 jack to plug a guitar chord into.
