Here’s a great vintage 1967 Mosrite mark I ( Ventures ) model made at the original Mosrite factory in Bakersfield California. This one is the killer sunburst finish with matching neck and blacked out headstock. This is the model that was produced shortly after the Ventures band endorsement expired. This batch of Ventures model guitars were already on the production line and they were finished just like the Ventures models-without “the ventures” decal on the headstock otherwise-they are identical
This guitar is all-original.
The body is in great condition and the finish is still nice and has a decent shine. There is some slight handling wear here and there but mostly small minor dings around the edges. On the backside edge, there is a small chip and the backside itself has two wear marks that go through the clear coat but not the paint-see photos. The amoeba neck plate is secure and the neck joint is excellent. The neck is super straight and the truss rod functions. The neck is super smooth like glass and feels great. The original tuners work great and the guitar stays in tune. The headstock and logo display marvelous (isn’t the best headstock/logo combo ever?) and both are in great condition. The fingerboard is rosewood with minimal wear. The frets have just been polished and they are the classic low Mosrite factory frets built for speedy play. The action is super low and the guitar plays ridiculously easy and fast! Of course you could raise the action if you’d like-but why? The high output pickups both have a strong signal and the classic hit Mosrite tone. All of the electronics are of course original and they all work great. The vibrato is incredibly smooth and the arm is solid.
The guitar is fairly lightweight for such a big piece-it does take up a lot off real estate. It is very comfortable and feels awesome on a strap or in your lap-either way, the reverse offset really does fit a body well.
The original case is in decent condition and the inside is the luxurious red poodle softy material that reminds me of the early 50’s Fender cases.
This is one of the last of the Ventures models produced and one of the best models Mosrite ever designed.
