Description

Vintage Mosrite Ventures Bass from 1966 SOLD

John Entwistle of the Who used a single pickup Mosrite Ventures Bass back in the early days with the band. (see pictures). They were reportedly used on The Who Sell Out studio sessions.

This Mosrite Ventures Bass from 1966 has some great Mojo. All original and complete with the original faux crocodile skin Mosrite hard case. The neck date is 6th Jan 1966. Pot codes date to 1966. One cool and rare bass guitar. Bass is in good overall condition with usual play wear, few dings and nicks but nothing troublesome. Age has given the bass a nice patina and there is some checking to the finish you can see in the pictures. Neck is straight; frets are good and set up ready to play. Ships in the original crocodile skin case.

Semie Mosley began making Mosrite guitars and basses full time in 1966. He was based in Bakersfield at the time.  His success was based mostly on the endorsements of the Ventures (a very popular “pop” instrumental group). In 1965 he acquired the rights to the Dobro name and after using up the remaining stocks and parts started making Dobro resonator guitars in the Backersfield factory. His association with the Ventures ended in 1969. Semie Mosley had several more forays into musical instrument production and too much to write about here. The history is readily available if you search for it.
