2000s Mosrite Ventures Model Super Custom '65 Pearl White w/ Vibramute, Case & Hangtags, Japan Kurokumo


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2000s Mosrite Super Custom 65 "Ventures Model" in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and factory documentation. Crafted at the KuroKumo factory in Japan, this uncommon reissue model was made for a limited period, with the majority of examples only available to the domestic Japanese market.

KuroKumo-made Mosrites are sought after for their masterful build quality and attention to detail, and this Super Custom 65 replicates all the essential features of the early Ventures Model instruments, with smooth knobs, a sandcast Vibramute tailpiece, and German Carve on the basswood body. The stock pair of stock single coil pickups are snappy and sparkling, not as overwound as some, yet still providing a bold, distinct sound in every pickup position. Chewy and snappy at the bridge and broader at the neck, these pickups offer an authoritative treble zing that's quintessential Mosrite. Weighing 8lbs 3oz, this Mosrite has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
