This Mosrite Ventures bass is a 1965 model signed by the band
(including 3 original members).* It is the original Mark I German-carved body style, with “Mosrite of California”/ M-shape notched headstock.

Body has been professionally refinished (originally candy apple red, visible in pickup cavity). The shell pickguard appears to be a replacement (original would have been white on candy apple body).* All other parts appear to be original. The neck, body, and pots all show Sept. 1965 dates. Pickup, knobs and hardware appear to be original. Bridge has been moved about 1” toward neck.

There are two small dings on the side (lower bout) and one on the treble-side horn, shown in photos. Other than these, the bass is in excellent condition. Hardshell case is included, but it does not appear to be original.

*Probably signed sometime after 1996.
**The pickguard screws in photos were not original, but originals were included in the case. We have replaced them since the photos were taken.
