I Just Got Ventures II Slab Body Serial #B011

Postby timmat » Thu Oct 04, 2012 10:38 pm

Wow...I cannot believe what just happened. I responded to a local Mosrite for sale ad, and discovered the holy grail. It is a white Ventures II slab body, serial number B011. It is in players grade condition, but is almost 100% original. It is missing the tremolo arm and spring, but still has the original top and bottom plate (screw in the trem arm hole). Also, the owner unfortunately wired up a phase switch years ago. It was done well and works / functions good, but makes it a bit less 'original'. Original pickups, knobs, tuners, etc. He was the original owner and purchased it at a shop in Santa Monica in 1965. Even has the original case. Dings and bumps here and there, but I can't believe this guitar showed up just a few minutes from my house!! She's all mine now, and here are some photos (courtesy of seller):
