Is it a Gibson?


Recommended Posts

I was always under the impression that the partnership between The Ventures and Semie Mosely was for financial gain first and a guitar design second. Seems like the Ventures injected capital into Semie's operation and of course promoted heck out of the guitar for mutual gain.

I could be 100% wrong and will hang my head in shame if so.

A (now deceased) friend worked for Fender R&D in the late 60s, early 70s, and also worked for OMI off and on. He grew up in CA, had a place in Huntington Beach, and grew up in the whole surf culture (real or invented). He called them Mose-wrongs. Just an opinion I'm sure. 

The closest I ever came to one was at a junky music store in Bangor, ME in 1977 where one hung in the rack for $150. 

But what a sound they had....  like this song or not, it does NOT sound like any Gibson or Fender alive.
