Thats ok Bob, this forum is pretty simular to many others, using the [img]url_address_here[/img] tags to post, there is a thread that Danny posted to explain how its done, but as you have such a great collection (and I am lusting badly over your early models!) I'll save you some pain; 8-)

You seem to have far too many Mosrites.. would you be willing to give one up to charity (e.g. me)?

Oh and welcome!

Guess we'll have to wait for Bob to chime in, I took the serials from the links in his site, some didnt have them in the link, there may be an error with some, but not if what was in the link was correct...

The serial number is H0308. Apparently the red Combo with the full trem plate is the most desirable for collectors. I think the Ventures used one like this on at least one occasion.
