Mosrite Mark V Guitar 1965 (one owner)
- Source: eBay
You're looking at a 1966 Mosrite MK V guitar that my dad bought for me (in lieu of getting my learner's permit) in the OHSC. This guitar is the little brother (25" scale) to the Ventures Model and plays like an air guitar, sporting Mosrite's "fast fret" design, and with the finish removed from the back of the neck by a luthier to reduce friction and drag, which it does. Bands using the Mark V include The Ventures, David Allan & The Arrows, (biker movie music of the 60's), Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), Danny Weis ( Rhinoceros, Iron Butterfly, and guitarist in the Bette Midler movie The Rose), Johnny Ramone (The Ramones), The Strawberry Alarm Clock, Joe Maphis, Buck Owens, Merle Travis, and Ricky Nelson. The guitar has only been played a handfull of times since the frets were dressed , and the pots turn freely with no resistance. The original receipt is included. I've included as many photos as I thought were relevant to show detail and wear, but will respond to reasonable requests without disassembling the guitar. Thanks for looking!
