For some things it seems you have to wait forever. I’d been looking for an original 1965 slab bodied Mosrite Ventures II since 1992 when I read in the Mondo Bizarro booklet that „Johnny Ramone uses: Mosrite guitars“ – none of my favorite German guitar stores knew about that brand, and it was before the internet…
After I missed some chances and missed some years, one appeared in Bath, UK, under the bed of a 50 years old deceased Ramones and horror movie fan who lived with his mother. A white generation one, nearly complete, perhaps made the same day as Johnny’s white, worn beauty – what else does a Ramones fan scream for? She became mine and turned out to be a perfect, fantastic player. Cheap, crappy, bad guitar? No way!!! If someone tells you that – he never touched one or has a bad one.
I fear I’ll never find out how and when she came to Europe. If you have any info, please tell me; the serial number is B021. Thanks a lot to David K. for finding her for me.
Any questions? Contact me: max@hang10.de
