1965 Mosrite Ventures ii slab body # B002

Postby MisfitWilliams » Thu May 14, 2015 12:07 pm

I have a 1965 Mosrite Ventures ii slab body serial # B002. This was given to my by my father who bought it new in 1965. The mistake was that I was 15 at the time and did not take good enough care of this guitar. It is missing the original black pickups, 1/4 in jack, and toggle switch. It has been repainted and the end of the whammy bar is broken off. It has been play so much that it is almost fret less. It also has a bridge on it that i have not seen in any other pictures of this model but my dad said nothing had ever been changed. I am debating on restoring or selling to someone who will. Does anyone know the approximate worth of this second off the line guitar. I wanted to put pictures up but I can't get it to work. I would appreciate any info that I can get.

Hello, what color is it and condition of the finish? I can help you with any restoration you may need, I make the original style pickups and have parts for it too.

Pictures?

Best and thanks,

Williams, there are people here very interested in photos of your guitar. If it's what I think it is, it's a very low serial number for one of these.
