Hello there fellow Mosrite fans!
Well, I've built Original Mosrites with my ol' friend and mentor Semie Moseley, and custom Mosrite style clones in my own shop for many years and I've never done any step-by-step photos of any of my projects, in fact dozens of my guitars have gotten away without a single photo, so you're going to see it here first, on the Mosrite Forum, Step-by-step photos of the hand-building process of four of my E.F.Elliott Custom Mosrite style guitars. I'm going to be building two '59 Joe Maphis customs and two '63 Ventures style custom guitars.
Administrators note: Simply click on on each topic for a pictorial guide through the process. If you have any questions or comments about a particular step, the individual topics are posted elsewhere in this projects forum and you can post you questions/comments directly to that particular step of construction.
