2006 Mosrite Super Custom '63 Sidejack Ventures Model Sunburst, Set Neck w/ Vibramute, Kurokumo Japan


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2006 Mosrite Super Custom ‘63 Sidejack "Ventures Model" in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. One of the rarest Kurokumo-made Mosrites ever produced, this top-tier model replicates the Ventures Model's earliest features with set neck construction, input jack located on the side of the body, and multi-ply binding framing the German Carve top.

Tonewoods include a basswood body with prominent German Carve, a maple neck, and bound slab rosewood fingerboard, yielding a smooth, balanced acoustic tone. These tonewoods provide an ideal platform for the single coil pickup pair which offers plenty of power, percussive cut, and sparkling treble. These pickups are more conservatively wound than USA Mosrites, still delivering the authoritative treble zing and cut that is quintessential Mosrite. Weighing 9lbs 1oz, this Mosrite has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The gloss three-tone Sunburst finish is framed on top by multi-ply binding, and cosmetic wear is limited to a scant few tiny dings and faint scratches on the body as a whole, mostly along the lower bout edge on top and on the back. The gloss on the neck profile is flawless.

A gigbag is included.
