:shock: :shock: :shock:

Holy cow! What's the story behind these? Are they 60s vintage or later? I love the idea of a Mosrite Bass 6, but it could probably stand a bridge pickup. Wow!!!

First time I behold a 6-string Mosrite bass... or does this one fall under the catagory of Baritones? :?
The trem-arm spring must be quite a heavy-duty one :D Thanks for sharing, Adam.

Good gravy Adam, I've never seen either of these before nor have I even heard of them. A Mark V Bass and a Mark I Baritone Guitar with a vibrato bar. Thanks a lot for sharing, It makes me wonder what other amazing guitars Semie may have made!
