Semie made Ramones Mosrite

Postby oipunkguy » Fri Nov 21, 2008 10:54 pm

Semie made a few prototype of Ramones guitars in the early 90's. all of them different. some with one bridge pickup, some with two. some with german curves, some with only a partial german curve. let me know if anyone else has any. these are pretty rare.

A pawn shop in Tokyo. Did you get those photos from Tim or do you have an identical instrument? The one I had had all the case candy, etc. I think it was serial number 3 if I remember correctly.

This one was up for sale in Japan a month or two ago. I wouldn't be surprised if Tim got a hold of it too. I think it was serial number 1.
