Thanks again for all the input guys! I've seen a couple of the early Firstman Avengers with "Avenger" in place of the "of California" beneath Mosrite on the headstock (which this doesn't have) and had also read somewhere (quite possibly within this forum) that later models added the Ventures logo, is that what you think this is guys? Sorry to keep pushing with the questions! Just interested. Cheers

I have one of these, late 60s, probably, which I refinished. They are great players, IMHO plays better than my Mosrites .... It may be that the Ventures logo (decal?) is a later addition, as I don't think the Firstman models had that on there.

I know this is an old discussion but I don't think this is an Avenger because Avengers have the truss rod adjustment at the headstock end of the neck.
