VINTAGE 69 MOSRITE GOSPEL GUITAR VENTURES NIRVANA
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2006-03-15)
Price : US $2,550
This is a very rare Mosrite Gospel solidbody electric guitar. This guitar has been owned for 11 years or so but not much information has been found on it. The only other one that has been seen or heard of is on the inside cover of Nirvana's Incesticide album. It's very similar to the ventures model and markV mosrites, but the neck pickup is straight across as opposed to angled. It plays like a dream, the thinnest fastest neck ever seen.
Sounds great too. Research puts it somewhere around 1969 but that is just a rough guess with serial numbers. Serial: B 1689. Overall it is in good shape, some of the paint is chipped around the edge of the bass of the body and a few scratched here and there, normal wear and tear for a guitar this age. One of the knobs is not original, it was replaced about 8 years ago.

Post a comment on VINTAGE 69 MOSRITE GOSPEL GUITAR VENTURES NIRVANA :
this is NOT an original mosrite, it is most probably a japanese re-issue by fillmore company. There were only 2 mosrite markIV gospels, one that kurt played and is smashed and the other owned by semie moseley's daughter. I have played one of these re-issue guitars and it is frickin awesome. So I am in no way trying to say that this is a shit guitar, by no means, just saying it isnt vintage and is probably made between late 90's to early 00's.
