Duplication of Serial Number
If you find Serial Number Duplication, please do not worry about and believe the both are Mosrite. Every Mosrite is "Built-in-Soul"!!!
When I met Semie Moseley in 1991, he said "I don't like to examine if Vintage Mosrite or not. My examination would hurt someone. If someone is happy with his Mosrite whatever his Mosrite is, I am also very happy to see such a guy and I don't care his Mosrite is vintage or not."
To get full information, I put the information from X-Owners to this list. So the serial number duplication would be seen sometime.

(Japanese) シリアルナンバーの重複
シリアルナンバーがときどき重複していることがあるようです。どれもモズライトに違いはないのだとお考え下さい。 いずれのモズライトも"Built-in-Soul"です!!!。

They both have AF serial no.s, which stand for,"After the Fire",that burned up the original Jonas Ridge factory. It is painted in "California Grape". The bluish streak in the middle of the body is really there. This thing changes colors in the light. It has a wider fingerboard than the green one AF2424, and is better suited for rhythm use.

Mark-V was made in 1967, my Mosrite was made in December 1965 and was called a Ventrues II. The date stamped on the back of the neck is Dec 19, 1965. I heard from another Mosrite fan that in 1965, the Mark V and the Mosrite Ventures II were almost exactly the same except for the name and the date they were made. The older Ventures-II had a flat body.

Click10UnknownBlackLackey, J98-9This item may be a Mosrite Bluesbender that looks closer to the brassrail. I believe it to be a 1976 model. The serial number is 10. I bought it this year from the original owner who bought it at Manny`s Music in New York City. All original parts. It says the new Mosrite of California on the headstock.
