Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this 1966 Mosrite Ventures MK I Model! This Ventures model Mosrite is about as hot as they come. You are not likely to find one in this color, in this condition anywhere else. There - we said it. Now, just so we know that you know, this MKI is a devilishly fast player as well. The frets being a little on the low side ( they're original from 1966 for crying out loud! ) this axe still plays well and can tear up whatever tunes you've got in your surf or punk rock catalog. The tone is full, warm and bright - perfect for a wide variety of styles and these pickups are something else! We think this Ventures model is the kind of guitar you can easily start a whole band around.

Item Details

Not every band gets to have it's own model guitar named after them but Surf Rock legends, The Ventures, certainly deserved their own.

This 1966 Mosrite Ventures model MK I, finished in Red, is all original. The red models of this guitar are more rare and hold their value very well. The offset alder body features Mosrite's iconic "German Carve" top and a bolt on maple neck with a bound rosewood fretboard. Some distinctive features on this model include a pair of Mosrite offset single coil P90 pickups, a Bigsby style Mosley vibrato tailpiece, small dot inlays, steel nut, zero fret and Kluson double line Deluxe tuners. This Ventures model MK I comes with it's original hard shell case.

Overall Condition

This 1966 Mosrite Ventures model MK I is in very good to excellent condition. The body is excellent with only 3 very small dings on the whole of the body and some horizontal finish checking which you should be able to see in the photos. You can call for an in hand description of this guitar. The frets, which are original from 1966, have been leveled and are on the low side. There is also some pitting in the fretboard in the first position. For those interested in playing this guitar regularly, we would recommend a new set of frets for it to perform its very best. The neck is extremely clean as well with no dings and a minimum of finish wear. 

This axe is a killer. It is rare, all original, super clean and it sounds like a 50 foot wave crashing down on top of you at Waimea. This one can easily sit in front on the collectors shelf or in the number one slot on the road.
