Postby daichi3 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 4:43 am

What is the material of this body of Mosrite Ventures Mark II and Mark v?
Is it the same basswood as normal?

Hi, Welcome. Didn't you ask this at The Gear Page, too? I answered there but to reiterate;

Yes, it is Basswood. That's most likely to be a 1965 Ventures II. Most 1960s Mosrite Solid-Body models are Basswood; that includes most Ventures models (some early ones are Alder,) all Ventures II Slab Body models, all Ventures II German Carve Body models and all Mark V models. I'm not sure about the Joe Maphis Solid Body Single Neck models or the Joe Maphis solid body double neck models.

1966 Ventures II German Carve, B670 - Yellow, Originally Sunburst.
1970s "Not a Blues Bender" Body 1 with a Long Neck Rout - Black.
1970s "Not a Blues Bender" Body 2.
1976 Brass Rail Deluxe #10 - Black.
