Check out this delicious 1966/67 Mosrite Celebrity lll, finished in 3 tone sunburst.
This vintage gal is in beautifully original condition, it has been adorned with an excellent, original Bigsby B7, but also comes with its original trapeze tailpiece. She has some obvious signs of age, but no breaks or repairs & every part is original. She has an amazing action and sounds lovely.
The playability of these early Mostites is actually incredible, the neck has a comfortable ’C’ profile, but the secret weapon in its arsenal, are the frets, they are purposely very low (à la fretless wonder!) which lends for a super-fast slim neck. The tonal range from its Mosrite Humbuckers is also very unique, high trebles to low bass, but has a clearly detectable Gibson meets Fender tonal characteristic!
You have to give it to Semie Mosely. His Mosrite guitars are about the most individual on the planet and this one from circa 1966/67 (Pot codes 1346647) was built in the heyday of the original California based Mosrite company, which spectacularly faltered soon after (after their distribution deal with The Ventures ended and an ill-fated agreement was struck with the Thomas Organ Company) – Mosrite filled for bankruptcy on Valentine’s Day 1969.
Mosrite were most well known for their Ventures solid-body guitars, but this Celebrity III is a fantastic guitar. It’s not unlike a Gibson 330 both in appearance and playability (no solid centre block like a Gibson ES-335)
Comes with an aftermarket hard flight case
