Out of Stock


MI USA. Good condition with player wear and chips and scratches. Solid basswood body. Bolt on rock maple neck with rosewood fretboard. Bridge pick up has been rewound to exact original spec using all original parts and correct gauge wire. All original except for rewind. Original pots date '65. Original output jack, switch and wiring. Original tuners. Everything works perfectly. Original finish has lots of checking (typical for vintage Mosrites). Original spun knobs and half round string guide. Thin straight neck with Mosrite "speed frets". Plays and sounds amazing. Non original hardcase. 

 

If you're looking at this you know what it is. These slab body Mk II's are RARE. I believe there are about 65 made in 1965 all up. Of course it's famous for being used by Johnny Ramone and this guitar through an old Marshall sounds like the first three records. 
I have written LOTS of stories about these so check my blog for more details.
