Mosrite Celebrity II models Serial Numbers List (1960s - 1970s, Hollow Body.)

Postby 101Volts » Thu Nov 30, 2023 2:33 pm

===================
Thread Introduction:
===================

Welcome to the serial numbers list for Mosrite Celebrity II Models. Either check this initial post, or go to the most recent post (or close to it) for the most recent update of the list.

If you want to see the serial number lists for either the Celebrity I or III, they are here:

Celebrity I:

Celebrity III:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8184

Contributing to this List:
======================

If you happen to own a Mosrite Celebrity II (the II model - not the I or III) of any type (6 string guitar, 12 string guitar, or bass) and would like to contribute information, I'll need info (and I'd also like pictures, if possible) of these areas:

1 - Pic of the front of the guitar.
2 - Pic of the back of the guitar (to show how the neck is attached - Mosrite usually had a neck plate for these, but sometimes had 3 or 4 screws with ferrules.)
3 - Pic of the sticker seen through the F-hole (if still present.)
4 - Pic of the Serial Number, which is stamped into the fretboard near the Neck Pickup (if the number is still present.)
5 - Pic of the headstock, front and top side.
6 - Pic of the headstock, rear.
7 - (Only applies to 6 String Guitars, unless there's somehow a 12 string with this tailpiece) - A pic of the Moseley Tailpiece, where it says "Moseley." Some of the tailpieces have a Patent Number, and I'd like to tell when that starts.

These last 3 are not absolutely necessary, but would also help:

8 - Pic of the Dates on the Potentiometers (if the pots are original.) They come in either Week-Year Format (so 45-66 would be in November 1966) or it's the reverse.
9 - Pic of the Neck Heel where it meets the body (if there's a date stamped, which probably doesn't exist past October 1966.)
10 - Pic of the Neck Pocket (if there's a date, again, which may not exist past October 1966.)

===================
Model Specifications:
===================

The Mosrite Celebrity II model is a Hollow Body Instrument with an F Hole. It has a Moseley Vibrato Tailpiece, a body that's 1 7/8" inches deep, and Pickups that do have pole pieces.

24.50" Scale Length (Guitar - 6 String & 12 String.)
30.25" Scale Length (Bass.)
Mosrite Single Coil Pickups (possibly with AWG 44 or 43 in the Guitar Pickups, and AWG 42 in the Bass Pickups.)

Body Wood:

I need to check this.

Neck Wood:

Maple with Indian Rosewood Fretboard.
