Hi, been looking for a mosrite!

Postby 13thfloor » Wed Sep 14, 2011 8:11 am

Hi i'm looking for a mosrite guitar.

Can some one tell me about the new mosrite reissue models from USA? I want to know if the 66' Mark 1 is a good guitar or if i should try to find me a vintage model from the 60-80's?

I see that the 66' reissue models are made from Basswood and not alder. Is this a good or a bad thing or does this not matter?

Welcome aboard. There are numerous posts here on the various Mosrite, and patterned-after Mosrites. Hallmark guitars have some interesting offerings, and from what I gather, the quality is excellent.

Welcome to the Forum 13thfloor. If you are looking for a vintage model from the 60-80's, be prepared to dig into your bank account (depending which model you decide on).
And the new models are not cheap, but you have first shot at buying a reissue as though you were buying a new one from the 60's :mrgreen:. You can purchase a brand new one at
'Front Porch Music' in Bakersfield. Artie, The store owner is a member here on our Forum.....And you will not be disappointed..... ;).

p.s. - When you've got time, you might want to 'moseley' over to the Introduction Thread and tell us a little bit about yourself :) .
make the Mos' of it, choose the 'rite stuff.

Look at Hallmark priced well below reissue Mosrites and more user friendly and sound and play great.
