DescriptionCirca 1965 Mosrite Ventures II Black Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # N/A. Somewhat of a parts guitar with all of the parts being from Mosrite. This 1965 Ventures 2 model was purchased from Semie Mosely's brother Andy on eBay in 2008. This has the desirable Vibramute tremolo. The finish is in excellent condition as is the entire guitar. No serial number as explained by Andy Mosely. This may have been assembled by the Mosely brothers from the contents they bought at the Bakersfield Mosrite factory auction when Mosrite was closed and auctioned off for debt in 1969. The guitar was in Andy Moseley's collection from 1969 to 2008, when it was sold to Dr. George Borst. Pots appear to be older but the dates were not discernable. 8.8 lbs. Soft case included. Condition: Very Good.
