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'm not much, but I'm still here. I never lost interest.

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.
Well, Mel promoted me to Admin since I volunteered to be a Moderator, and I'm overseeing the forum. You may now post without the anti-spam measure blocking you regardless of how long you've been a member, and I have also opened registration - but not to the automatic process. I have to manually approve each new member.
So far, I've had registration open for about 2 weeks. Only one new member has made a post in that time, but perhaps I should have been sending private messages to each new member as I approved their memberships - I'm not sure how many new members are aware that I approved them, unless they asked me over Facebook messenger first.
The newest member who posted is beatcomber, who has made an introduction thread, and he has a few questions about an early 1970s V-I model that he is thinking of buying:viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8173
