Here is a vintage 1968 Mosrite Celebrity semi-hollowbody electric bass guitar. This particular example, serial number Z-0507, is in very nice cosmetic condition. This very vibey vintage short scale bass is: lightweight, easy to play, great-sounding, and represents a great opportunity to buy a highly functional vintage piece for not much money. At the current price, the bass won’t last long, so don’t hesitate, and make this fine vintage bass your fine vintage bass!
This Mosrite Celebrity features: a bound laminated Maple top, back and sides, the original classic Sunburst finish, a laminated mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard, bound “F” holes, a zero fret, (2) Mosrite Deluxe single coil pickups, adjustable bridge and trapeze tailpiece, and non-original Schaller tuning machines.
Aside from the after-market Schaller tuners, and the commonly missing bridge cover, this bass is 100% original. It was recently setup with D’Addario flatwounds, and it plays smoothly and feels great. As can be seen, there are no cracks, no breaks, no repairs, and no other structural issues whatsoever. There is slight weather-checking around the control panel area, but otherwise the finish is surprisingly well-reserved and intact.
The bass barely weighs 6 pounds (6 lbs. 7 oz. to be exact) and it is definitely the guitar player’s bass. Short scale basses are easy to play for guitarists and bass players alike, and they have a fantastically unique sound.
The bass does not have a case, though it will be packed and shipped accordingly.
