Revival of the Forum

Postby GattonFan » Sun May 15, 2022 7:14 pm

Let’s do it!
To all who may read this: Danny recently made an appeal for new members, but wouldn’t it be great for those of us who formerly supported this forum to have a revival of interest and renew our acquaintances. This was a place populated by people who not only loved Mosrites, but also a place of great civility toward its members. We had builders, band members, aficionados, restores, amp experts, and some great conversation. I’d love to see that kind of revival here.

I love this forum. Got my 68 combo ten years ago and knew nothing about it. Thanks to you guys I can research any questions that I need answered. Recently I took it in for a refret and patiently waiting for its return. This forum is an huge source of information and I check it every day. Thanks for making this possible.

I'm in! A little update. I retired last year and moved to Central Florida. I still have my Mosrite Celebrity domain name but the site has to be rebuilt from scratch. The previous host just disappeared and all of the stuff I had went with it. Through the wayback machine I recovered the text. Godaddy did something to my email and they all disappeared. Dang it!

I've been helping my cousin wind down her law practice and at the same time creating a new business call US Women's Shooting Academy. Yeah, yeah I know that doesn't sound like I retired but it isn't work for me. I really enjoy teaching people how to shoot. https://uswomensshootingacademy.com/

Also, I don't discriminate and will teach men as well.

I'm between bands I guess. Actually, I haven't been in a band since 2014 when I injured my back but it's been mended and time to get back into the music scene.

This is a great forum with a ton of information that should be preserved. I will commit to popping in as often as I can to say howdy! We might want to reach out to everyone on the Mosrite Owners Facebook page and invite them to participate here.

Alrighty, then. I'm good with that, though I didn't really leave, either.

I haven't bought any new Mosrites (well, as whole guitars) since 2011. The most recent Mosrite-specific acquisitions were the 1974 "Not Blues Bender" Prototypes in late 2018, bought from Gonkulator. I haven't done anything with them yet.

I did buy a 2000 - 2003 Danelectro Danoblaster last year. It has a Mosrite body outline, but it's more of a 25" scale Stratocaster clone with 4 effects built-in. If I plug it into my small Gibson BR-9 amp from 1950 or so, and then I use the echo sound effect, it sounds nicely 1950s.

What's its serial number and finish? I'm working on a serial number list for the Combo, and it's still pretty small.

Sarah, I'm not sure if I ever looked at the serial number lists you compiled for the Celebrity models. Could you please post them in the Vintage Instruments section?

Good to hear from all of you. I checked in periodically, but I really enjoyed the tips and insights I gained on here, especially when I put that Partsrite together. Thanks for the response, and Sarah, you’re a long way from Cali now, eh?

Oh boy! That will take a minute. I have over 500 serial numbers collected on Celebrities.

About as far as I can get! I'm happy to be back in the South among my relatives and family roots.
