One of the last Mosrite guitars made. It’s a 1972 Mosrite Celebrity I with the original Hardshell Case! A beautiful Redburst that is all original.
The serial number at the end of the fret board is 1C0113. I C stands for Celebrity I and were produced from 1972 thru 1974. Given the lower number we are calling it a 1972 but it could any of these 3 years. There may be a date stamp in the neck pocket but the neck is so tight in the pocket I didn’t want to force it out. Awesome fit!
The Celebrity I differed from the Celebrity II and III’s from the body size. It is much more similar to a Mosrite Gospel as it has the 2 ¾ inch deep body. Much more like a Gibson ES174 than a ES335. What is also interesting is the half Mosely Tremelo Tailpiece. He usually used fixed tailpieces but probably had some left over trems to add as the last of the parts were being used up. He also used a Tortise look pick guard instead of the usual white. Very cool look on this Redburst guitar.
The Mosely single coil Pickups are awesome like all of them. I love Mosrites and think they rival P90’s in tone. Give me a Mosley Neck pickup any day. I will be a happy man. The neck of course features the super small frets and ultra fast neck. Bound F holes and 3 ply body moldings on the fully bound body and neck.
Our Techs set the guitar up with awesome low playing action with a new set of 11 gauge strings. I like a little heavier gauge on these. The guitar is in excellent shape and has not had a lot of play on it. Check those original frets! Matching Switch plate to the pickguard, you have one really cool looking Mosrite here.
It has a 1 11/16ths inch nut, a 25 inch scale neck and it weighs just 8.5 lbs. What a cool guitar!
Check out the original Case. These Mosrite cases are getting really hard to find. I was thrilled to get the original with this guitar. Its not just a Mosrite case, it’s the ORIGINAL to this guitar, Mosrite case! All latches, hinges and original handle are still with it. The Gold interior is very nice and has been used. I glued a few places on the end that had come loose. An excellent original case for your really cool Mosrite Celebrity I guitar.
Its beautiful but used and vintage so its sold as-is no returns. However, I have been hand picking my customers instruments for close to 20 years now and they all loved the guitars I found them. This incredible Mosrite will certainly not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
