Hi Guys !

Thanks to thomann.de and the Harley-Benton brand, we - Lefties - have now the possibility to acquire a Mosrite-Ventures-like guitar at a true bargain price :

Another "El Cheapo - Junky - Toy" ? Certainly not : just "El Cheapo", regarding the price above (here in France).

Speaking about the quality, just see below - I discovered a flawless instrument :

OK - some little mods later :

DCR of the pickups, via the electronics of the instrument :

Despite being quite heavy with 4.2kg, this HB-Mosrite is a stable, well-balanced, easy-to-play and truly good sounding guitar !

Oh, and it also exists in Right-Hand, with or without tremolo, and even in Baritone version, at similar prices... :naughty:😎

Cheers,

P

Very classy take on a classic '60s guitar. I have yet to own an HB model but I have also yet to read a post from anyone who has not felt they offer an excellent product for the price. Congrats on your Mosrite!

Nice score!
I had a Univox copy of one of those years ago, lent it to an acquaintance (thought he was a friend), never saw either of them again.
Enjoy it!

Thank you Guys ! :)

There's virtually no Lefty Mosrite-like guitar available, and AFAIK, no original Lefty Mosrite even entered in a regular production...

Of course, you can have one custom-made by a Luthier, etc... But it is not for a mere 250 Euros ! And moreover, if the guitar is well-built and fine-sounding...

The Harley-Benton guitars are too often underrated - I already have three of them to attest it :



That said : I modded and setup'ed those guitars, bought 2nd hand for less than 100 Euros each, but nearly unplayable. This was not the case with the HB Mosrite right out of the box though.

Cheers,

P

Shielding the pickups à la Faraday, to eliminate the last disturbances :
