Released as the result of a collaboration between Mosrite and surf-rock group The Ventures, the Mosrite Ventures electric guitar was a short-lived, funky child of the '60s. High-gain pickups and a super slim neck, as well as a unique tremolo system, characterize the Ventures. Some time between late 1965 and early 1966 the Mosley Vibrato was introduced on the Ventures model. The guitar features the truss rod adjustment in the heel and an 8 screw pickguard which would date it to the first half of 1966.
