1967 Mosrite Celebrity III

This is a vintage 1967 Mosrite Celebrity III hollow-body electric guitar. This 100% all original guitar, serial number K-0107, is in very excellent condition and has evenly faded from the original cherry finish to an attractive organic orange color. This particular example features all original parts, including: neck, body, finish, pickups, double-line Kluson Deluxe tuning machines, bridge, tailpiece, pots, plastic parts, and hardware.

This light guitar, the design of which was influenced by the Gibson ES-330, barely weighs 6 pounds. The guitar has been thoroughly tested, and it plays and sounds great. Both the neck and bridge pickup sound very nice, and the electronics function perfectly. The neck features a relatively thin neck profile shape, but it is very comfortable as the nut width is 1 5/8”. The guitar is accurately intonated, and is a pleasure to play even around the 12th fret. The original small frets exhibit considerable wear, and will not facilitate many additional years of similar use. The neck, however, is perfectly straight and plays really well considering the fret wear.

As the photos clearly illustrate, this Celebrity III is in very excellent original condition. The body does not display significant playing wear, and only has several small flaws. Aside from the dramatic fading, the guitar has not changed that much over the years. The neck shows some expected dings and dents, but nothing overly distracting or unusual.
