MOSRITE “VENTURES” BASS.
NEW IN ORIGINAL CASE.
FROM THE JONAS RIDGE, NC FACTORY
BUILT BY SEMIE MOSELEY
(WITH HIS SIGNATURE ON BACK OF HEADSTOCK)
ABOUT THE INSTRUMENT:
You are looking at a NOS (New Old Stock), MOSRITE “VENTURES” BASS from the MOSRITE JONAS RIDGE, NC FACTORY. It is absolutely the best looking Mosrite guitar we have every seen from this period. The finish is a PEARLIZED WHITE that glistens from every direction. It is perfect we believe. And irreplaceable. A true "ONE OF A KIND" collectible guitar.From the information provided to us, this is a custom Mosrite built in the Jonas Ridge factory sometime in 1982-83. On the rear of the headstock is Semie's signature with a date but all we can make out is 19-- and Mr. G. will not let us touch the screws to remove the tuner to get a better look. This was a special order bass guitar built for RANDY (it appears that the last name of Randy is Moseley as noted on the ticket signed by Semie but we have not been able to verify that information). This name “RANDY” was stamped onto the fretboard as you can see in the pictures here. Along with the guitar is part of the shop ticket for this guitar showing that Semie signed off on the “Finish”, “Hardware”, “Set-Up”, “Test”, and “Approved By”. The owner of this guitar, Mr. G, would not allow us to touch this guitar other than to take pictures and the we wore gloves to do so. We have called this a "Ventures" bass since that seems to be what Semie wrote on the ticket.
