Few guitars have as much notable association with a group as Mosrite does with The Ventures. Outfitting the wildly popular instrumental guitar band with its equally wildly designed guitars has made Mosrite a historical figure in the guitar world. It was rumored that Mosrite founder Semie Moseley "turned a Strat over and traced it" to achieve the iconic design of this guitar, and it certainly appears that way. These unique instruments were not limited to the surf rock world though, and would later see a resurgence in the hands of punk rocker Johnny Ramone. This beautiful specimen has two single-coil pick-ups and a tremolo system. With only slight bowing of the neck and some paint chipping at the neck joint and lower bout, this guitar still looks gorgeous and plays to match. This guitar is a must for any fan of Mosrite, The Ventures, or the Ramones. The guitar also includes its original hard-shell case and a sealed pack of original Mosrite guitar strings.
