Around mid-'60s, a marriage between "mosrite",
a Rolls-Royce of electric guitars, and The
Ventures, the world's greatest instrumental group, swept the
whole country of Japan.
The long-time dream of "electric guitar ('eleki')" kids who then were junior or senior high school boys now has come true and they are just having fun playing "The Ventures" tunes with their "mosrite". It's a genuine "mosrite" sound that "Guyatone" or "Teisco" back in those days or "Japan mosrite" could not produce.
Here are some profiles of jolly papas who have come back to 'eleki' kids from 30 years ago, with highlights from their private concert in April of 1997.
