Rare Vintage Blue Mosrite Ventures II Slab Body Guitar Serial # B022

Seeing is believing. The next best thing to owning Johnny Ramone’s White Ventures II Slab Body which sold for $937,500 would be to own a Blue Ventures II Slab Body exactly like the one Johnny originally owned. He started his career with the Blue Ventures II Slab Body in 1974 before that guitar was stolen in 1977.

To any collector this is a rare find. The guitar has had minimal use over the years which resulted in its limited fret wear and extraordinary finish. The chrome is in excellent shape only requiring minor cleaning and the pickguard is free of any scratches attributed to heavy playing. Other than the original 2-way selector switch and a scratchy tone pod which needs to be cleaned, all other parts including the tremolo and pickup work perfectly and were tested at the local “Guitar Center” music shop with a recommendation to not restore it, keeping everything in its original condition.

I have owned this guitar ever since I purchased it at a Sam Ash music store in New York in 1970 in “used” condition. My understanding at the time of purchase was that all the parts were original. Since 1970, I have not had any work performed to replace anything on the guitar, except for new strings. Cosmetic wear on the guitar includes two small ding marks on the edge of the face, a small one mm thin scratch on the rear edge as well as a wear mark on the rear of the neck at the second fret.

Pictures speak louder than words and we have included explicit angles to emphasis the details. For a vintage guitar, this one is in excellent condition and offers any collector a opportunity to own an original and exceedingly rare collectable Blue Mosrite Ventures II Slab Body Guitar.

The guitar purchase includes the case I bought along with the guitar in 1970.
