1965 Mosrite Ventures Mark 2 II Slab Body in Bakersfield Red #B047

Pure Americana, extremely rare Johnny Ramone guitar, original vintage Mosrite Ventures II slab body in original condition. Thankfully no one has messed with this guitar. 

No breaks, cracks, repairs or paint work, original everything

Bridge pickup was however rewound to spec by reputable Mick Brierley via Tym Guitars, who's an expert and considered "the best" at what he does . Rewound with correct wire & gauge. It's sounds correct and is balanced nicely. I have another 65 slab here to compare and the pickup sounds like the real deal. 

It's quite a feeling holding the real thing in your hands, but when you plug it in, it is indeed a revelation. Guitar is worn in and played and has a beautiful, attractive vintage patina to it. Most importantly, it feels spectacular and very special in your hands. It's a thing of beauty and produces great feelings of joy. I would say more-so than a vintage Strat which is commonplace in comparison. This red guitar #B047 has the smoothest and most worthwhile, functioning vibrato I've ever used on any guitar. This is a rarified American hot rod, the guitar does not disappoint. It is slick, sexy & powerful. It does not very much resemble or feel like the Ventures I, the older brother, with the short scale slab here he created a masterpiece without setting out to do so. The tone of this guitar does not resemble Fender guitars. The pickups are incredible. The scale length, string spacing, body shape, wood and pickups really create something singular and unique. 

There are perhaps only 20-25 known to exist, most not in original condition. You will find that the owners of these rare guitars are not willing to part with them. 

Does not include original case, but will be shipped in a solid padded hardshell case.  Shipping includes insurance. 

I have a myriad of amps if you'd like to test drive the legendary guitar. 

Please email with any questions. 

As with every guitar I sell, no surprises, only satisfaction.
